June 21: Bats!
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s the nocturnal winged mammal Austin is best known for: bats! They live at the Congress Bridge, Bracken Cave, and in lots of nooks and crannies in between. Discover what makes these mysterious creatures so unique and important.

From the Wildflower Center’s Dinosaur Creek to the cool depths of Barton Springs, water brings joy to Central Texans, especially in the summer. Learn how the wet stuff supports plant and animal life in areas conspicuous and hidden.
