Olompali is Open
Five Days a Week
Among the residents of Olompali, none are more mysterious--or cuter--than the insect-eating bats that populate the park and surrounding area.
Some 200 visitors got a first-hand look at them on September 7th during Olompali's annual Bat Night.
Expert Corky Quirk of NorCal Bats (at the left in the photo), showed off a number of species, including the pallid bat, which has a longstanding and thriving colony at the park. Olompali also is home to the big brown bat, hoary bat, western red bat, Townsend’s big-eared bat, Mexican free-tail bat, and a tiny bat that eats mosquitoes.
Olompali has become a safe haven for bats because of the protection that the park provides in its protected wild lands, lack of pesticide use, old snag trees, and preserved historic buildings in which bats can roost.
