Join naturalist Cathy Stragar for a walk around the Woodend Sanctuary. We'll listen to insect songs and try to catch a glimpse of the singers: katydids and crickets.
This walk will help you get ready to participate in Cricket Crawl 2014—an evening sound census of late summer insects on August 22. As we walk we’ll be focusing on the eight target species of the Crawl. To preview and listen to those eight, and to learn about the Crawl itself, visit http://www.discoverlife.org/cricket/DC/.
Free, no registration necessary. No dogs please.
