Highways cause habitat loss and fragmentation. They can also sometimes provide habitat, like for bats roosting under bridges. This afternoon/sunset tour travels to the Yolo bypass and causeway bridge to see almost 100,000 bats fly out for evening foraging. The several-mile long causeway is located over a seasonally-flooded bypass and wildlife areas and includes some birding opportunities.
Trip Details: Location is approximately 20 minutes from the conference. This is a half-day field trip.
