Merlin Tuttle Day and Member Cruise

We had a wonderful time celebrating Austin’s bats and Merlin’s 82nd birthday during our annual Merlin Tuttle Day event and our member appreciation cruise! Merlin shares his special thanks to everyone who was able to join us and participated. For those of you who weren’t able to come, please enjoy these selected photos from both events and plan to celebrate with us next August!

Thank you to all who have submitted birthday wishes via videos, messages, posts, and donations. Merlin was delighted to hear from you!

Special thanks also to Capital Cruises for donating their boat; to Tacodeli for the iconic food; to Voodoo Donuts for the excellent sweet treats; to HEB and Central Market for donating decorations and drinks; Desert Door Texas Sotol for delicious local sotol, and to all of you for recognizing and supporting Merlin’s incredible efforts and the impact that can only be accomplished with the generous support of many!
