Bats at Camp Bayou

Bat Presentation

because bats are beautiful...


Friday, September 4th, 2009

The folks from the Florida Bat Conservancy will offer a program on bats. This will immediately precede our Full moon walk. So come for one or both! There is no charge for the bat program but we are requesting a $5 donation for the walk to cover cost of supplies for campfire s'mores at the end.

Camp Bayou is a public- private partnership between the non-profit Ruskin Community Development Foundation, Inc. (RCDF) and Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation. Camp Bayou is located 3 miles south of SR674 at the end of 24th St SE in Ruskin. More information is on the web at .


Camp Bayou is nether a campground nor a summer camp. It was an RV park before the County's ELAPP program purchased the land but it is now open for day use only, open to the general public. Through volunteers, donations, membership and grants, the RCDF offers pre-scheduled programs to schools, youth groups, adult groups and families plus it's open from Thursday- Saturday from 9am-2pm for passive recreational pursuits such as wildlife watching.
