Special Harvard Club Night at the Yolo Wildlife Bat Fly-out

Join us for this private viewing tour of bats in Davis, organized by the Harvard Club of Sacramento. Enjoy the company of your fellow alums/families for this educational event, and get all your chiropteran questions finally answered!

Did you know that the largest colony of Mexican free-trailed bats in California lives under the Yolo Causeway? Approximately a quarter million bats make up this colony, and these bats emerge nightly in long ribbons as they head out to hunt for insects. Come join the Harvard Club of Sacramento for a Bat Walk, including private viewing tour with some local bat experts.


The evening will begin at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters in Davis where we will meet some ambassador bats and enjoy a private presentation about these amazing mammals and the astonishing flyout that we'll see on our Bat Walk. The program is entertaining and educational for all ages.


After the interactive presentation, our group will caravan to the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area with our bat experts to learn about the wetlands and get in position to watch the fly-out. There is a small amount of walking. Those in wheelchairs or unable to walk may view the bats by car. (Please let us know if you have special needs.)


When: Sunday, August 20th at 6:00pm (the entire event will last approximately 3 hours)
Detailed directions and further information about the evening will be emailed closer to the event.
Cost: $18 for adults and $6 for children 5 and up. Children under 5 are free.
