Each summer, hundreds of thousands of Mexican free-tailed bats pour from the Selman Bat Cave to feed on insects, and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s Wildlife Diversity Program offers the public the chance to watch. This event is a great way for families to experience an exciting piece of Oklahoma wildlife together.
Due to limited spacing, all Selman Bat Watch visitors must pre-register. (The area is closed to the public except during official events.) Each night’s viewing activities are limited to 75 visitors drawn from the pool of mailed-in registration forms. Admission to the Selman Bat Watch is $14 for adults and $8 for children ages 8-12. Children must be 8 years of age or older to attend. Register here starting May 29. Spots fill up quickly!
