Woodard Bay Conservatory provides habitat for shorebirds and songbirds, harbor seals, river otters, bald eagles, a large maternity colony of bats, and one of the most significant heron rookeries in the state. For the 3,000+ members of the bat colony, the railway trestle provides a safe, warm place to raise their young.

Located just outside of Olympia, Washington

    Wonderful image, Kathy. I would never have thought about bats using the railway trestles over water for their colonies. Sandy

  • Thank you so much Sandy.. I had no clue either. I thought it was just caves. Who knew, huh?
