The Wolli Creek Preservation Society is holding their annual ‘Bat Watch’ Picnic again.  It is a great evening outing to have a picnic, then watch the Grey-headed flying foxes head out in search of food.  Personally I think it is a beautiful sight.

DATE:            Friday 10th March 2017

TIME:             6.30pm – 8.30pm.  There will be ‘batty crafts’ for the kids from 6.30pm.

ADDRESS:   Turrella Reserve, Earlwood.

BRING:          You, your family & friends, food & drink, something to sit on & insect repellent because the mosquitoes can be bad.

March is ‘Australasian Bat Month’ & the Wolli Creek Preservation Society will be having their annual Bat Watch Picnic in Turrella Reserve.

Bring a picnic dinner, rug or chair & insect repellent (for the mosquitoes) & watch thousands of grey-headed flying foxes stream out of their Turrella camp.  To me this has been one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen.

We are so lucky to have such nature close to us.  Flying foxes are extremely beneficial to the environment & without them, our forests would be in real trouble.

WHERE: Turrella Reserve beside Wolli creek.  Enter via Henderson Street Turrella or Finlays Avenue Earlwood.  Please note that there are no toilets at Turrella Reserve.

WHEN: Friday 11th March 2016.

TIME: 6.30pm. Last year’s event was finished by 8.30pm.

This is a free event.  I will post a reminder & more details closer to the date.
