COLUMBIA — Fifty registered guests were able to see endangered gray bats fly out of Devil’s Icebox Cave on Friday night. The park hosted the event that included exploring Connor’s Cave and information about the white nose syndrome, a disease that affects bats. The event was free, but participants had to register. The same program will take place Saturday evening at Rock Bridge State Park.
