CUYAHOGA VALLEY INSTITUTE: A CONCERT OF KATYDIDS AND CRICKETS IN THE DARK

Friday, August 4 | 7:00 p.m. — midnight

The Ledges Shelter

Learn how to identify and search for Cuyahoga Valley National Park’s summer night musicians with Lisa Rainsong, a Cleveland Institute of Music faculty member, and Judy Semroc, Conservation Specialist for the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. 

The program will begin with a one-hour indoor introduction to the common species in our area and how to identify their songs. We will then search for the singers at the nearby Little Meadow, learning about which insects sing in the various habitats we will explore. The data you gather will be given to the National Park Service to support their work on the following:

  • Which crickets and katydids we can expect to find in CVNP
  • How to identify crickets and katydids, and how to differentiate them from grasshoppers
  • How they sing
  • Where they sing
  • How to listen
  • How to search for them and how to gently catch and release them
  • Observing molting and reproduction
  • Cricket and katydid habitats and habitat protection

After registration, and before the event, please expect to receive a full itinerary of the evening along with a suggested list of items to bring.
