      From Linda Davis via Jil Swearingen:

      Next Saturday come and learn about the insects that are singing outside
      now: cicadas, crickets, and grasshoppers.

      Wil Hershberger, co-author of Songs of Insects book, CD book, CD,
      and website (http://www.musicofnature.org/songsofinsects/) will present an
      hour of
      photos and sound recordings of these singers.

      Then he’ll guide us on a walk outside to listen to the night.

      I’ve heard Wil present, and he’s fascinating. The best part will be
      the opportunity to be outside with him. Here are the details:


      When: Saturday, 8/6, 7:00 pm

      September 10.

      September 10: Insect walk with naturalist Wil Hershberger along C&O
      Canal near Sharpsburg, MD. These walks are family-oriented events
      especially popular with young children. They focus on tree crickets
      and different species of katydids. Meet at 6:30 p.m. at the large
      National Park Service parking lot on Canal Road, three-tenths of a
      mile downstream from the Rumsey Bridge over the Potomac River. Free
      and open to the public but space is limited and pre-registration will
      be required. The walk will not take place if it is raining. For info
      and to pre-register contact Kelly Heldreth at kheldreth@... or
      304-229-6229.
