Up To 250,000 Bats Flock To The Yolo Causeway In Northern California Every Summer

Stretching across the Yolo Bypass floodplain, the Yolo Causeway has aided human travelers driving between West Sacramento and Davis for over a century. In recent decades, the causeway has taken on another usage that’s made it especially popular among wildlife enthusiasts. Believe it or not, this seemingly typical causeway is home to up to 250,000 migratory bats in the summertime, and seeing them fly around the evening sky is an extraordinary sight. Keep an eye out the next time you find yourself driving across the Yolo Causeway. This is a sight to be seen!
