Please join us for the free "Bat Flight Program" (May-October)-an evening talk where a ranger presents information about bats prior to their flight.People come from all over the world to watch nature at its finest in the form of the Brazilian free-tailed bats leaving the cave each evening in the summer.The size of the colony fluctuates from night to night and season to season.Between 200,000 and 500,000 bats call the cave home over the summer, swelling to over one million during migration.Very few places in the United States remain wild enough to view wildlife in their natural settings on such a large scale.Carlsbad Caverns National Park is one of the few places.We invite you to join us for this breath taking event every summer as long as the bats see fit to bless us with their presence.
