Emergence Times

If you are approached by anyone “fundraising” or collecting donations for protection of the site or the bats, please know that BCI is unaware of any NONPROFITS soliciting money from the crowds at the Congress Avenue Bridge.

The Bats at the Congress Avenue Bridge are currently emerging between 8:45 and 9:30 p.m. every evening. (Updated July 28, 2014)  ~Emergence times may vary due to changes in weather conditions.~

The physical address for the Congress Avenue Bridge is;
919 Congress Avenue
Austin, Texas 78701

Emergence times are updated twice a week.  Many thanks to Lone Star Riverboats for the weekly emergence time updates.
