September 20, 2020 - September 26, 2020 @ Virtual and Hassayampa Event Bridge
This event focuses on the spectacular migration of turkey vultures and Mexican free-tailed bats that roost at the Hassayampa River bridge in town. This will be a virtual program this year and we encourage you to check out the great resources available on the Facebook event page and our website page. However, we still invite you to watch this amazing migration spectacle in person. During September 18th-October 6th, we can view the peak fall migration. The best view is from the Hassayampa Event Bridge looking to the east as the vultures perch in large eucalyptus and cottonwood trees along the riverbed. At the same time thousands of bats are roosting under the US-60 bridge. The bats fly out near sunset to feed on the many insects also sharing the night sky over the river and surrounding desert. The prime viewing week is September 20th thru 26th, but they will be migrating from mid-September through early October.
