Wake Audubon Society Monthly Lecture: Sounds of Summer: Get to Know the Cicadas of North Carolina

  • Tuesday, June 14, 2016
  • 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Cicadas are among our most recognized insects and their calls are a familiar element of summer, but identification of some species remains difficult and tenuous. Bill Reynolds, Curator of the Museum’s Arthropod Zoo, looks at recognition and identification of North Carolina’s 21 known species, including the 13- and 17-year periodical cicadas, and some of the the many annual species.
