Austin/San Antonio Chapter - Bat Watching Sunset Cruise

Bat Watching Sunset Cruise

Join alumni and parents for the sunset bat watching cruise.

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 largest urban colony in North America, recognized by National Geographic, The Discovery Channel, and various other news media. Come relax on the lake, observe our unusual attraction, and listen to the narration and history provided by your captain.

Austin/San Antonio Chapter Council volunteer Jason Rowland ’95 and RIT Alumni Association Board Member Greg Penoyer ’06 look forward to welcoming members of the Tiger family on what is sure to be a wonderful evening. This event will be a great opportunity to network with RIT Tigers and expand your personal and professional networks in the Austin/San Antonio Alumni Chapter.
