Museum Road is under construction so it is difficult to get to the bat houses. We hope to achieve that visit after construction vehicles are gone for the day

We are truly animal people. We adore bats and respect how vital they are to the environment. We arrived too early but it was worth the wait. At the predicted 15 minutes after sunset the bats began to emerge. What seemed like millions of bats, flew in a swirling mob until they spread out across the sky.

An unusual experience not to be believed until you witness it. Nearly 500,000 bats begin to exit the houses at 15 minutes past sunset. There is a virtually constant flow of bats for about an hour. Read the website before you go to understand what is happening. It’s free! Parking nearby.
