Did you know that Texas Parks and Wildlife is sponsoring a “Bat Loco Bash” in San Antonio every Tuesday night until August 13th this summer? If you’ve never had the chance to view the bat colony that lives under I-35, then this would be a great (and FREE) event to try out! Here is the official Bat Loco website with information about the times and place. This is a fun family activity!
And if your family enjoys that, then you might be interested in seeing even more bats as they leave their tunnel for their nightly dinner at the Old Tunnel Wildlife Management Area near Fredericksburg. Our family has done this a couple of times, and we are always astounded by the sheer number of bats! On Thursday-Sunday evenings, you can pay to enter the lower viewing area and receive an educational presentation. It’s definitely worth checking out!
