PL_Parks_Recs_Bat-info-posterDid you know that one of City of Pearland's known bat colonies is located under the Fite Road Bridge? The maternal colony boasts more than 10,000 Mexican Free-tailed bats. The young pups within the colony are unable to take flight at this time, so be sure to visit our new observation area in July and August well before sunset when hungry mother bats and their pups begin emerging.
 
The City recently installed interpretive signage along the Mary’s Creek trail - across the street from the Stella Roberts Recycling Center. It is strongly encouraged that all public viewing take place from this designated location as bats are a protected animal species and its important humans keep a safe distance. Don’t forget to bring your viewing binoculars!
