Summer Night Walk @ Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden

27 Apr

Led by wildlife experts, the Summer Night Walk introduces participants to the wonders of the nocturnal world at Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden.

Highlights include:
* An introduction to one of the most successful groups of nocturnal animals – the bats;
* A visit to the home of some of our rescued nocturnal animals including owls and leopard cats. It’s a great chance to see them when they are most active;
* Immersion in the chorus of calls of nocturnal wildlife present on our hillside, and chance encounters may include fireflies, frogs and snakes that dwell in and around streams and ponds along the walk. With a bit of luck, you may even catch sight of wild porcupines or hear the call of the barking deer.

About Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden: Established in 1956 as a base for the Kadoorie Agricultural Aid Association (K.A.A.A.), the KFBG site near Lam Tsuen, Tai Po, is one of Hong Kong’s little known jewels. Nine kilometres of road wind their way up around organic farming terraces, theme gardens and native forest to the summit of the mountain, Kwun Yum Shan, at over 1800ft above sea level. A wide variety of educational displays, sustainability features and wildlife rescue facilities complement the extensively landscaped gardens with their cobbled paths, pavilions, bridges, waterfalls and picnic spots.

KFBG‘s three core programmes – Nature Conservation, Holistic Education and Sustainable Living – are constantly evolving as they address different aspects of the challenge to live in harmony with nature. In addition to the many on-site courses, workshops and special events that have been developed for the education and upliftment of visitors, KFBG‘s activities extend throughout Hong Kong and into South China and other parts of the region.
