Carlsbad Caverns Nationalpark
Dawn of the bats
One special morning each year, curious visitors join park rangers at the entrance of Carlsbad Cavern to witness the homecoming of hundreds of thousands of Brazilian free-tailed bats. Between April and October these bats call Carlsbad Caverns National Park home. Each sunset, hundreds of people witness their mass exodus from the cave in search of food and water, but far fewer people are present as these creatures of the night return at sunrise with their bellies full. The Dawn of the Bats is a special event celebrating the bats as they arrive home in small groups and dive back into the safety of the cave. The main event begins at 5:30 a.m. and will continue throughout the day with activities and programs. A full schedule of events will be posted at nps.gov/cave. For more information, visit Carlsbad Caverns National Park on Facebook and Twitter.
