The free workshops, sponsored by the Arizona Department of Game and Fish's Bat Conservation and Management Program, give viewers an opportunity to learn more about the bats in the cave from experts.
And as Bat Conservation and Management program coordinator Angie McIntire points out, bat cave viewing can make for a fun night out, too.
"There's some cool restaurants in the area, like Havana Cafe and Chelsea's Kitchen," McIntire says. "It makes for a great, not-your-typical date or night out. And each year, the event has gotten bigger. In July or August of last year, there were 300 to 400 people."
The first workshop of the summer takes place at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19, at the bat cave entrance near 40th Street and Camelback. Subsequent workshops are scheduled for June 15, July 9, August 6, and September 3. For more information, visit the Bat Conservation and Management website.
