Going Batty

August 26, 2023 @ 7:35 pm - 8:35 pm

A Living Exhibit!

Saturday Evenings at dusk Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend

*Program times vary by week depending on the time of sunset*

Meet at the front entrance of the Nature Center.

Going Batty consists of a weekly talk and observation of local bats during May – August each year. We have two bat boxes where bats live at the nature center. These are wild bats—we never feed or touch the animals.

Guests of Cachuma Lake Recreation Area are welcome to visit our bat boxes at any time during their visit, although they typically only come out about 30 minutes after sunset, and only live here during the warmer months.

This is a living exhibit! Please do not disturb the bats with lights or loud noises.

Keep a 10-15ft distance from bat boxes at all times.

Includes a Docent led talk and Q&A.

After learning about the local bats, we’ll move to the Native Garden to watch as the bats drop out of the bat boxes to feed.
