Join Chris Salisbury, outdoor educator and author of new book Wild Nights Out, for an unforgettable evening bat walk and nighttime nature adventure around Walthamstow Wetlands. In an urban world where streets are lit 24 hours a day, we often forget that nature has so much to offer at night. Chris will help attendees become more comfortable with nighttime explorations, showing what animals you can spot, how to navigate the dark safely while expanding your senses, and he will share fun nighttime games and activities, which you can take with you on your next nocturnal excursion.

Chris’s new book Wild Nights Out will be available for purchase on the night.

Meeting at the Walthamstow Wetlands carpark, a member of staff will be on the gate. This walk is open to 8+ years only (accompanied by an adult) and is approx a 1.5 mile loop. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather. Bat detectors will be provided, but you’re welcome to bring your own if you have one! This event will be held in line with current Covid-19 Government guidelines including social distancing.
