Bat Mine at Iron Mountain

Bat Mine at Iron Mountain

The Bat Mine is a critical hibernating and breeding location for up to one million bats, one of the largest concentrations of bats in the world. Bats begin arriving at the mine in late August and early September. They remain in the mine shaft throughout the winter and begin emerging in late April and May. The best time to view bats is right at dusk as they begin to emerge from the mine entrance.
