This Virtual Field Trip is a collaboration between the McNay Art Museum and Bracken Cave Preserve.

Virtual Field Trips offer a safe way to engage and share experiences through art. Invite a friend from of out of town, out of state, or out of the country! This month, test your knowledge of the only flying mammal on earth and take in some nocturnal artworks in broad daylight.
