Part of the Fiordland summer events programme: Meet the Eglinton Valley bat monitoring team and learn about the amazing creatures they work with. Share a banana split as the sun sets and then head into the forest to discover the creatures of the night!
A good level of fitness is required as you may need to walk for up to an hour, off the track and in the dark.
Transport: Drive own car or carpool to Knobs Flat in the Eglinton Valley.
What to bring:
- Warm clothes
- Bed roll/something to sit on (you may be in the forest awaiting nightfall, so be prepared to sit still for a while on the forest floor)
- Spare clothing
- Sturdy boots
- Torch and spare batteries
- Snack and drink
- Insect Repellent
- Personal first aid kit/medication
- Dry shoes and spare clothes for afterwards
If you are adequately equipped, activities will be enjoyable, otherwise, they can be cold and miserable. DOC reserves the right to refuse participation if you are not adequately equipped.
Entry by $5 donation. Bookings are essential as numbers are limited.
Postponement date 27 January.
Fiordland National Park Visitors Centre, Te Anau, Fiordland
