If you find yourself near the South Congress Bridge at just the right time of year and just the right time of the evening, you’ll be delighted to witness an incredible show of dynamic display of nature happening around you.
The Mexico free-tailed bats are a staple of the Austin skies. Each summer, millions of bats take flight from beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge. The colony has become largest urban bat colony in North America.
Hundreds of people gather on the bridge to watch them take off. Be amongst the many tourists in locals who gather together watch the bats take flight, and participate in a fun scavenger hunt along the way.
Witness the beauty of nature, even deep in the city of Austin, at the Congress Avenue Scavenger Hunt & Bat Tour!
