Events and training

Whether you are a bat-beginner or an expert you are sure to find an event for you in the listing below. Year round the Bat Conservation Trust, local bat groups as well as conservation and community organisations arrange bat events across the UK  from training courses  to bat walks for families. 

Highlights for 2017:

We kicked off the year with a Mitigation Case Studies Forum in January and the conference season is bringing together bat enthusiasts across the country with the South West of England Bat Conference in March, the North of England Bat Conference in May. The Wales Bat Conference took place in Swansea in June, the Autumn Swarming Conference was in September and the Scottish Bat Conference returns to Battleby in November.

In November, we have an exciting new course Bearing Witness for Wildlife training for anyone wanting to improve their skills in recognising and reporting wildlife crime or when acting as a witness. 

Throughout the year there are a range of training courses for both professionals and volunteers interested in improving their skills and bat knowledge. If you can't see the course you are looking for, contact us to discuss your training needs.

International Bat Night a nationwide celebration of bats coordinated by BCT will take place over the last weekend of August.
