Waterways for Wildlife – Lowtown Batwalk


As part of our Waterways for Wildlife project on the Barrow Line of the Grand Canal we will be visiting Lowtown in Co Kildare where the Barrow Line leave the Grand Canal and heads south to join the Barrow River. At this evening event, we will be looking at the mammal life found along this canal. Meeting at Lowtown we will walk the canal bank at sunset looking out for our native bat species as well as signs of other canal loving mammals such as the otter. We will have bat detectors with us and will be able to listen to the echolocation calls of any bats present.

As this is a nocturnal event we need to limit numbers for health and safety reason, so booking is essential. Contact us at conservation@iwt.ie to book on.
