When: Tuesdays, 6:30-9 p.m. Continues through Aug. 26 2014
Thanks to Prince, we all know what it sounds like when doves cry. We also know what it looks like when bats fly, because we've seen Dracula do it. But what about when bats WALK? Do they swagger? Do they lurch? Sadly, you won't be finding out at Garden of the Gods' weekly Bat Walk, since it's you who'll be doing the walking while the nocturnal creatures take to the sky. At 6:30 p.m., bat fans will meet up with naturalist and tour guide Jeanne McElderry in the Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center (1805 N. 30th St., 219-0108). Reservations are required, flashlights recommended. And just so you know, vampire bats can actually run up to 2.5 miles per hour. — Bill Forman
