Crickets, Katydids, & Moths

Thursday, August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Late summer means a chorus of insect calls. What would a warm summer night be without the gentle sound of chirping crickets filling the air? Then late in the summer is the “Katy did, she didn’t; she did; she didn’t call” of the katydid. All together it is a nature symphony! When it comes to night-time bugs, don’t forget the moths; while beautiful butterflies get all the credit, there are almost ten-fold as many moth species compared to butterflies in the world! You’ll learn about the night time insects and see if you can catch (and release) some!

Spend an evening learning about nature close to your home in these naturalist led programs! For ages 5 and older.
