Nature walk: Bats of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area
September 19, 2019 @ 5:15 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us at Yolo Basin Wildlife Headquarters for this special event of seeing and learning about the Mexican Free-tailed Bats. Following a 45-minute indoor presentation on bat natural history, the group will carpool to the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area to watch one of the largest colonies of bats in California as it emerges in large ribbons to hunt insects at sunset. To get to the bat viewing site, we will travel through leased rice farming fields to an area not open to the public. The whole experience takes about three hours. This is a family friendly event with a small amount of walking.
