The Great Big Green Week: 18th – 26th September

At Cody Dock we are taking part in The Climate Coalition’s Great Big Green Week from 18th – 26th of September. To celebrate and support it we are running some cool events that are free and open to all. The Great Big Green Week is part of the lead up to COP26, which is the UN Climate summit that the UK is hosting in Glasgow during November.

These activities have limited spaces so please sign-up asap to avoid disappointment because some of our events can be really popular. Also, please do let us know if you are no longer attending so we can offer the space to someone else.

Beer & Bats: The Finale

17th September, 5.30pm – 9.30pm

A relaxing bat watch and walk around Cody Dock and Cody Wilds, with a small pop-up bar. You will work in a small group, learn about bats, and hopefully successfully identify different species at Cody Dock. This project supports the National Bat Monitoring Project.
