Midlands Bat Conference

Midlands Bat Conference

Skills development workshop

"It was very good, would definitely go to the next one" Conference Delegate 2022

This one-day event is an opportunity for anyone interested in bats, from hobbyists and volunteers to professional bat workers, to spend time together updating their knowledge, sharing best practice, developing their skills and catching up on the latest 'bat chat'. The day includes a mixture of short and long talks on projects and new knowledge, and a choice of practical workshops. There will also be time for catching up with bat friends or making some new bat acquaintances.

Whilst the conference is open to anybody from any region, you may be able to meet people from the bat groups in the Midlands and central region.

The next conference will be held in Spring 2027.
