The Devil’s Sinkhole State Natural Area will hold a combined bat flight viewing and stargazing event this Saturday, July 30th. Though normally all Devil’s Sinkhole tours begin at the Rocksprings Visitors Center, for this special event, guests paying the entry fee in cash or by check can go directly to the state natural area gate.
