TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Due to safety concerns the bat bridge interpretations at two Tucson bridges have been canceled, according to a recent release from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. 

For the last several years the bat interpretations held at both River and Campbell and Pantano River Park, have been well received and attendance has increased.  It is due to this increase in numbers though and a concern that the areas cannot handle the larger crowds safely that officials have discontinued the interpretations, said the release. 

For those who would like to know more about bats, the Desert Museum is encouraging them to attend their event Cool Summer Nights, where they can see live bats and learn more about these often misunderstood animals. 

If that is not enough for those interested in bats, on August 30 the museum will be hosting a special evening all about bats - Go 'Batty for the Museum's Birthday'. 

For more on this special event in August go online to www.desertmuseum.org
