Join High Park Nature Centre's naturalists and special guests Magali Meagher and Jon Hayes to explore High Park's amazing and mysterious bat populations!We'll begin with an interactive presentation outside the Nature Centre where we'll learn about all things bat — its behaviour, habitat and favourite foods. We will then leave to explore High Park's trails using hand-held bat detectors. If we're lucky we'll hear the bats' ultrasonic calls as they swoop and loop during their evening, mid-air forage and spot their silhouettes.
