Day Hike - Woodard Bay

Not just 3-4,000 bats.....harbor seals with a bald eagle eating an afterbirth, peregrine falcon fledglings hunting for juvenile bats, and about 300 cormorant nests in a relatively new colony across the bay. Plus an intact shed snake skin. This is a fabulous night trip!

  • Road suitable for all vehicles

Bats begin coming out promptly at sunset, so find out when that is.  Take a spotting scope if possible and definitely binoculars.  We enjoyed hot cocoa and bat cookies!  Plan on staying about 1/2 hour after sunset and hiking back in the dark---bring headlamps!
