Echolocation Anyone? Learn About Downtown Bat Colony During July Bat Tour


Austin likes to think of itself as the king of bat country, but we know better! San Antonio bat lovers unite! Join the San Antonio River Authority, Texas Parks and Wildlife and Bat Conservation International on July 9, 23 and 30 from 7:30-9 p.m. each evening for an educational “bat tour” at one of the largest bat colonies in the Alamo City.

The tour takes place at the river level near the intersection of Camden and Newell, where participants will learn about local bats and watch them emerge from under the I-35 bridge.

This event also gives participants the opportunity to visit the Museum Reach Urban Extension of the San Antonio River, a section that spans from Lexington Avenue to Josephine Street and includes a loch and dam near Brooklyn Avenue, hike and bike trails, landscaping, overlooks, boat landing, water features and pocket parks. When completed, the River Walk extension project will create a linear park through the city more than 15 miles long, covering more than 2,000 acres of public parkland.
