Sounds of Insects at Thorn Creek Woods on July 31

Registration Required by Wednesday, July 29

Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)—July 24, 2015. As the sun goes down many animals are just becoming active, and even though it is hard to see them with the fading light, you know they are there because of their calls. Join a naturalist at Thorn Creek Woods on Friday, July 31, 7:30 -9:30 explore the Sounds of the Insects Night Hike on the night of the blue moon.

You can hear a very special group of insects that have the gift of song like no other. Sunset is the best time to explore and listen to these gifted songsters as we bid adieu to the day shift and welcome in the night shift! We’ll listen and learn the distinct sounds of common local species and why they make these sounds.

Please note that this program will take place outdoors, hiking preserve trails over uneven terrain. This program is free and for all ages.   Registration required by July 29.
