Kids and their adults are invited to a Night Out In The Bendigo Bush with the Bendigo Family Nature Club on Saturday.

Experts in the nocturnal life of Bendigo’s bush will show children how to safely use spotlights to meet our native local creatures of the night.

“Ten months of the year we organise free and fun experiences for families in the Bendigo Bush,” the club’s Brenton Rittbergersaid.

“This month we have special guests who are sharing their expertise about our local mammals’ life in the bush at night time.”

Using torches, visitors will be guided by Bendigo TAFE students on how to safely spot creatures at night.

The students are studying Certificate IV in conservation land management.

The event is taking place on Saturday, October 13 at 6.30pm. Attendees are provided with the event’s location after registration online at www.a-night-out-in-the-bendigo-bush.eventbrite.com.au
