If you are planning on visiting The Eckert James River Bat Cave Preserve, NOW is the time. Pups are flying and the emergence is totally breathtaking! Current emergence time for the bats is right at six o’clock. I open the gate at six, so don’t be late, because the show is enough to bring smiles of appreciation, and silent squeals of delight!! Call the bat hotline for more information at 325-347-5970.
