Sutton Nature is the home of Sutton Nature Conservation Volunteers (SNCV), who are the main nature conservation organisation operating within Sutton and has been working to conserve and maintain Sutton’s many wildlife sites since 1987.

They have a regular number of events to help residents to understand the ecology of Sutton and they have announced the activities for September.

Bat Walk. Saturday 12 September, 7.45pm-9.45pm. Whitehall Museum, Cheam. Bats start to ‘swarm’ at the end of the year, which may fulfil a social function or be part of the mating process. We’ll walk and talk about bats and see if, using bat detectors, we can find any swarming bats.
