The Bedfordshire Bat Group organises a number of different types of events each year ,
We can only work within the county of Bedfordshire.You can contact us at enquiries(at)bedsbatgroup.org.uk .
If you are not based in Bedfordshire, you can check your nearest bat group on the Bat Conservation Trust website
Every year the bat group leads a number of free bat walks. Most of these are administered through other organisations. In 2014 We helped at walks at Priory Country Park Harrold Country Park and Ampthill Town Council. These are all organised by these organisations (see calendar for dates and booking details We are currently awaiting confirmation of the Ampthill Park walk, which will probably take place during August). https://www.bedsbatgroup.org.uk/wordpress/?page_id=9683
We were also contacted by a number of organisations e.g. Friends of Tiddenfoot, local scout groups, and once again they sort out the booking side of things for us
Contact us if you have would like us to organise a walk for you. Numbers are limited to twenty to ensure the best possible experience. We do not charge for talks but welcome donations for the bat care fund and will not do walks if you are going to charge participants to attend. We can tailor walks to the needs of a group (e.g. visually impaired and often use sites which are wheelchair friendly
Every year we do a number of talks. We can tailor these to your requirements.
We do not charge for talks but welcome donations,We do not charge for talks but welcome donations. The money from donations funds our bat care project. The money from l 2015s talks has allowed us to buy a polytunnel for use rehabilating injured bats.
We give talks on a range of topics to adult groups. These can be tailored to fit your requirements. In 2014 we gave talks to the Bedfordshire Natural History Society, the Bedford Group of the Wildlife Trust, and a number of church and retired groups
We also have a long history of doing talks in schools and for beavers, brownies and scout groups within Bedfordshire.
“I’ve got to say a massive thank you to both you and Bob ! The 21 young Beavers sat brilliantly and were totally captivated throughout your presentation. My own young Beaver was still buzzing with bat facts this morning !”
We recently did a talk and a walk for some brownies at camp. Please notes bat only come out when it is dark, and hibernate
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your visit to Woodcroft this weekend. I was hoping it would be a success but had no idea how much the girls would love it and that we would actually spot some bats.”.

The Bat Group takes its stall to a limited number of events each year. You will, need to provide us with cover and tables. We don’t go to events which change us to attend.
