Bat Netting

Special Events


Up Close and Personal with AZGFD

As if Southwest could get any wilder! Arizona is home to 28 species of bats, many of which live and forage right in our own backyards. Here’s your chance to see these fascinating creatures up close. Arizona Game and Fish biologist Jeff Meyers will be at Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center for an unforgettable evening of netting and identifying local bat species. Registration fee includes a guided tour of Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center’s sanctuary, a bat presentation, and watch up close as biologists measure and release netted bats. Light refreshments will be provided.

Tickets are $50/person. 
This event runs for four hours, from 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM on Saturday, May 20 and again on Saturday, September 9.
This event is not recommended for children under 10 years old.
