Bexar Grotto Meeting

Join us for this rare opportunity to view the bats emerging from Bracken Bat Cave!  That's right--instead of our normal Monday night meeting, Bat Conservation International is letting us meet at Bracken!

For those who don't know, Bracken Bat Cave is the largest community of mammals anywhere in the world, hosting approximately 20 million Mexican Free-tailed bats.  They swirl around the cave entrance and fly off in dense cloud into the horizon.  The bats are so populous that they emerge for hours and even show up on Doppler radar.  It is an amazing sight.

Note this meeting will start earlier than usual at 5:30pm to accommodate a potluck dinner (the bat flight itself starts a little before dusk).  If you would like to participate in the potluck, please bring a dish or snack to share, and please be sure to take any dishes you bring with you when you leave.

Things to bring:

• folding chair

• bug spray

• camera

• binoculars

• a respectful attitude for the nature preserve

• and a potluck dish!
