Cricket Crawl 2012 - Evening Sound Census of Singing Insects - Jug Bay

Join fellow Citizen Scientists from across the Baltimore/DC area for the 2012 Cricket Crawl, an evening sound census of the late summer crickets and katydids. We’ll review the songs of our target species, then travel to several sites to listen for them, and record and submit our data.


You must be 10 years or older to participate.





Lesser Anglewing - Microcentrum retinerve

Forget tweeting--this summer Maryland and D.C. will be CHIRPING!  If you’ve ever listened to crickets singing on a summer night, then you’re qualified to participate in Cricket Crawl 2012.                       

Visit our website to see the data as it’s mapped in real time as you do your count.  We hope to have the results go live during the night:


Enjoy the sounds of summer and make a difference!

    Hi Lindsay, looks like we are the only ones going - haha. Should we still do this with only two people? Also, do I need to get there right at 730 or can I be a little late? Thanks!!
