Join the nocturnal wildlife ‘spotlight’ at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens next Friday evening. Council’s Tom Dexter spies a greater glider at last year’s event.

Find out which creatures are awake at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens on Friday evening, September 23 when Eurobodalla Council’s environment team leads a ‘spotlight’ in conjunction with gardens staff.

Join the nocturnal wildlife ‘spotlight’  and maybe spot a greater glider like they did at last year’s spotlight.

The event is to celebrate National Threatened Species Day and everyone is invited.

Just bring a hand torch and wear sturdy shoes or boots, long pants and insect repellent.

Dusk is primetime to spot nocturnal animals as they emerge from their hollows and resting places, so the starting time is 5.30pm.

You’ll see and learn about nocturnal animals like possums, owls and gliders in their native habitat while you discover the gardens at night.

The guided walk will finish at 7.30pm.

If you would like to attend this free event, please book with Council’s Courtney Fink-Downes on 4474 7493.

The Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens is situated on a 42 hectare forest site five kilometres south of Batemans Bay.

The gardens displays plant species and the site abounds with a wide variety of flora and fauna.
