Come get on a boat and see the bats from under the Congress Avenue bridge with all your Rotary friends in Austin.
The eclub is sponsoring a multi-club bat cruise - it was a lot of fun two years ago!


It is a spectacular sight to see the bats emerge from the bridge at sunset! An estimated 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats live under the Congress Avenue Bridge. It is the larg-est urban colony in North America. Join fellow Rotarians to socialize with old friends, make new friends and enjoy what Austin has to offer.

The cruise is a social potluck - the e-Club is providing bottled water and utensils - everyone else needs to bring a dish and a beverage.
