Bat Emergence Viewings

The Chiroptorium are hosted public viewings of bat emergences held in late summer. Using infrared camera equipment from Boston University researchers documented more than 156,000 bats in May of 2011. June is the time when most of the mothers are giving birth. By late summer, the babies begin to fly with their mothers.

Ranch staff will be on hand to interpret the show and talk about the ecology and significance of the Mexican Free-tailed bat. Transportation will be on the Bluebonnet and space is limited to 40 adults. The emergence times will be announced when we mail you a confirmation letter and map, but plan to be at the parking area near the ranch entrance around 6:30 p.m. for check-in.

  • Cost per person is $7
