It is June 1, 2014. It is 11:04 P.M. I just got in a little while ago from The Eckert James River
Bat Cave Preserve. We had a total of eight people visiting the Preserve tonight. The Mexican Free-tailed bats did not emerge again this evening. We did get to watch a wonderful emergence of the Cave Myotis bats that emerged at 8:45 P.M.. I think it has rained enough that the bats have plenty to eat so they can sleep in a few extra hours. Hopefully before next Thursday they will be coming out earlier so we can enjoy them. Please be at the Preserve no later than 7:30 P.M. for my educational presentation and to keep from disturbing the bats.
I am Vicki Ritter and I am back for my ninth season as acting steward for The Eckert James River Bat Cave Preserve. Admission is $5.00 for persons six years of age and older.
It is late so I am going to keep it short and to the point so I don’t miss the paper’s deadline this week. Remember, if you are planning on visiting The Eckert James River Bat Cave Preserve this season, we will be closed June 26-29. For any other information please call the bat hotline at 325-347-5970. See ya at the cave….
