Events run or supported by B4C.
Whites Hill ReserveJoin B4C's Stefan Hattingh for a night walk through Whites Hill Reserve. We've got new equipment to help us spot wildlife that we're very excited to show you! We'll use a spotlight along with a red filter, heat sensor camera and a night vision camera. We will use a GoPro to inspect a glider nest box. Whatever vision we see will be able to be viewed on our ipad too. This event is strictly limited to a maximum of 15 people so that we can limit noise and disturbance and make sure it's a quality event for all. Light refreshments will be served. Please wear insect repellent and closed in shoes suitable for walking. Not suitable for children 11 and under. Children 12 and over must be accompanied by an adult. Please note that the ground is very uneven in Whites Hill Reserve which is even more challenging with limited lighting. $20 per person. Book and pay via eventbrite link above.
