West Leeds residents can get better connected with nature with three events involving bats, ponds and moths at Rodley Nature Reserve.
Last month’s bat night at the reserve was cancelled due to unforeseen weather conditions. But the next one is still due on 26 August. Attendees can get to know our batty friends from 7.45pm.
The bat night promises on teaching attendees about the habits and sounds of bats. It will also help them find bats using detectors.
Another event, this time involving flying insects, is being organised earlier that day.
The moth trapping event starts at 10am. It includes attracting the moths of different shapes and sizes using various methods and for people to get to know them better. The reserve welcomes everyone including children for this event.
And pond dipping sessions run every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, from 1pm, subject to weather conditions.
You can book for events via e-mail on email@example.com or by contacting the reserve on 0113 2040441.
