Bat Viewing Tour at Fort Cooper State Park

This event has expired and is here for your information.

June 9, 2023 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

The monthly bat viewing programs occur during the warmer weather at Fort Cooper. Meet at the pavilion at the specified time (generally shortly before dusk), and a park ranger will lead you on a short walk to the viewing area to patiently wait for the bats to come out for their evening flight. For your safety, be sure to wear close-toed shoes. There are over 5,000 resident bats here, making this nightly occurrence an awesome experience.
