Join Us for a Summer Evening Bat Walk. Experience the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine After Dark When Bats Come to Feed! A Summer Bat Walk is one of the most fun events in Orange County on a summer night! Summer Bat Walks, organized by Sea and Sage Audubon, take place at the beautiful San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary, a 300-acre freshwater wetland in Irvine. The event combines an indoor presentation by expert Orange County bat biologist Stephanie Remington and an outdoor evening walk along the ponds in search of bats. Two species of bats visit the marsh in small numbers to feed on flying insects. You can watch and hear them flying right over the ponds and trails! Participants write that “it’s fun, educational, and great for all ages” and “chance to see and learn about a fascinating creature.” For adults and children age 7 and older. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Because of the length of the program, children under 7 are not allowed. A special Junior Batologist program is available for kids age 7-12.These popular walks fill up quickly so register as soon as possible. Participants should be able to walk at a moderate pace up to a mile and a half on flat, uneven, unpaved ground using ambient night time light. The entire program lasts about 2 and 1/2 hours. Be prepared to stay the entire time. Due to the presence of disease-causing insects, there is a strict clothing requirement and a liability waiver must be signed for each participant. Information will be mailed to registrants. Preregistration is required. No walk-ins accepted. A 48-hour cancellation notice is required for refunds.
