For Families with children ages 5 and up.


Join a naturalist for a night hike and a sound census of the late summer crickets and katydids. Learn to identify different species of crickets by their calls and go for a short hike to see what species we can hear.  After listening to the evening chorus, we’ll gather around a campfire and enjoy s’mores.

Adult participation is required.  No younger siblings please. This hike is not be suitable for younger children or strollers as it will be off-trail on uneven ground.
