Citizen Science: How to conduct a Bat Emergence Survey
Citizen science is when the public contributes to scientific research - you could be a species expert, or just someone with an interest. In 2024 Bore Place are offering is a series of FREE training sessions to learn to survey for our six key indicator species in a friendly and relaxed group setting. From there, you can then look to take on regular or ad-hoc voluntary surveys at Bore Place, to contribute meaningful data to our work.

Join the Bore Place annual Bat Emergence Survey
Bats aren’t actually one of Bore Place’s six indicator species…they’re a bonus!
This evening is a bonus in the Bore Place citizen science series – bats have just proven too popular to leave them out! This will be the third bat emergence survey. Please come and help us conduct a bat survey on Bore Place House, our beautiful Jacobean manor house, and other buildings at the heart of the estate. The evening will begin with an introductory presentation and task briefing and then, equipped with your bat detector, you’ll be stationed around the site to conduct the survey and record your sightings. No experience necessary!
This training session is one of Bore Place scheduled surveys – so by the end of the session, you’ll already have contributed data to Bore Place research.
Places are limited for each training session and must be pre-booked. Please book here to let us know you’re coming.
If the session is fully booked, please join the waiting list as Bore Place may be able to offer another training session in response to demand.
