Cricket Crawl 2013 - Sound Census of Singing Insects - Chinquapin Park

If you’ve ever listened to crickets singing on a summer night, then you’re qualified to participate in Cricket Crawl 2013.

Cricket Crawl is an evening sound census of the late summer crickets and katydids, which will help scientists to document these often overlooked insects’ distribution.

One group will be meeting in Chinquapin Park in Baltimore that evening to listen, and you're welcome to join us.
