Unforgettable evening of capturing and identifying local bat species with Arizona Game & Fish biologists!
See what the nocturnal/diurnal mammals at SWCC get up to as the sun sets. If you're lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of the bats and the night hawks as they fly over the tour route!
Monthly on the Full Moon
See what our native wildlife is up to in the mysterious hours of night. If you're lucky, you might even hear a serenade from the Mexican gray wolves or the tiny howl of the grasshopper mouse.
