The Scottish conference provides an opportunity for volunteer and professional bat workers across Scotland to spend time together: updating their knowledge, sharing best practice, developing their skills and catching up on the latest 'bat chat'.

The day will include spotlight talks from various bat groups across Scotland, longer talks on projects or sharing new knowledge and research talks. There is a regional priorities discussion session at the end of the day, usually chaired by one of BCT's Trustees, providing a forum for bat worker's to share questions, successes and priorities for bat work in Scotland.
