After the sun has set, the night sky fills with small but mighty flying bats. Enjoy an evening discovering how important bats are to our ecosystems and how they help us stay bug-bite free! The program begins with an informal introduction to bats in the Soda Fountain at your own leisure. Then, breaking into groups, we will walk around the lake to search for these nighttime flyers as they race around catching their dinner. Bat detectors will help to identify and hear their high-frequency calls.

  • All ages, 7+ recommended.
  • Less than 1 mile over uneven terrain (walking around the lake on partially paved trails).
  • Dress warmly in layers as we stroll about a half mile around the lake. Program is free and designed for the whole family to enjoy!
  • Meet at Soda Fountain Pavilion in Irvine Regional Park.
  • Program is free, though registration is encouraged on
