Periodical Cicadas: The Plague and the Puzzle
Saturday, June 8, 2019 @ 11:00 am
The entire population of three cicada species, called a brood, emerges after a 17-year underground larval stage, changes into adults, courts, mates, lays eggs, and dies. 2019 Brood VIII event has begun in our area and parts of Pennsylvania and West Virginia! Our guest speaker is cicada expert Dr. Gene Kritsky, Dean at Mount Saint Joseph University in Cincinnati. After his one-hour talk, attendees are invited to drive to a to-be-determined spot to walk and discover more about these fascinating insects. Recommended for ages 10 an older. FREE. Sponsored by Audubon Society/Mahoning Valley. Questions? Call Wild Birds Unlimited: 330-629-2473.
