Hybrid ‘Walk and Talk’ program shows off importance of bats in the Yolo bypass

Your chance to see the bats and learn all about them returns as the Yolo Bypass Bat Walk and Talk program returns for the summer. The organizers say that it is wonderful to see a quarter of a million bats coming out of the shadows to chase dusk. Bat Walk and Talk is a hybrid program, where the talk is a 45-minute presentation on the history of bats that you can watch from home or on your smartphone. You can then join a guide to see the bats leave the trail in person. “There are about a quarter of a million of these free-tailed Mexican bats that live under this bridge,” Corky Quirk told the Yolo Basin Foundation. Quirk explained that bats are an essential part of agriculture in the Sacramento area. “They are extremely important to agriculture because they eat crop pests. We have a lot of rice growing here. There are nuts in the neighboring communities, corn, so many different products that are our natural insect control,” he said. The program has dates in June, July, August and September. All are evening events and cost $ 15 for adults and children are free. For more information or to register, visit their website at yolobasin.org/bats2022.
