Hibernation hike in the Avon Valley

Date: Thursday 8th of March 2018
Time: 10am-12.30pm (arrive from 9.30)
Location: Avon Mill Garden Centre, Loddiswell, Kingsbridge, TQ7 4DD

Find out why the Avon Valley is such a great place for bats to hang out! The bats may be hibernating but we can still be active. Join staff from the bat project and South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on a ‘hibernation hike’ in the beautiful Avon Valley countryside. This walk will show you many of the habitats that bats love to use.

We will enjoy a walk from the river valley up onto the tops where you get fantastic views out across the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In addition you will meet the owners of Ham Farm (also our refreshment stop!) and find out what they are doing to improve the habitats for the bats.

The walk is a moderately easy 2.5 miles, with a steep climb up out of the valley.

If you’d like to book lunch at the garden centre café on our return, please arrive at 9.30am to place your order ready for our return at around 12.30. You could also spend some time browsing the large selection of plants as well as the shops and gallery. Perhaps you could buy some bat friendly wildflower plants or seeds for your garden?

Meet at Avon Mill garden centre from 9.30am. Wear suitable clothing and sturdy footwear.

To book your place, email bats@devonwildlifetrust.org or phone 01392 260849.
