BAT BOX MAKING
Join a member of the Exbury team in the New Forest, Hampshire at this fun and educational workshop to create Bat Boxes specially designed for socially distanced family groups. Turn a collection of pre-cut wooden pieces into a cosy nesting place to take home and hang in your garden. We’ll lend you the tools you need and give you some tips along the way as you put the bat box together. We’ll also provide some useful information on bats.
Under cover by the Visitor Entrance at Exbury Gardens. Ask a member of staff for directions when you arrive.
There are four sessions to choose from:
Each session lasts approximately 45 minutes.
£6 per bat box, in addition to gardens admission or Friends of Exbury annual membership. Please call 02380 891203 to book your place.
Throughout October half term, day gardens admission and Friends of Exbury arrival time slots must be booked online and unfortunately cannot be booked over the phone. Click the button below to book your time slot.
