Did you know you can tell the temperature by counting the chirps of a Snowy Tree cricket? Have you ever wondered what insects make up the amazing chorus on summer nights?
The Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation invites the public to Sheep Hill at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7, to learn more about the world of grasshoppers, crickets, katydids and other night-singing insects.
Bring a flashlight and shoes suitable for damp and possibly mud conditions.
The program is free and suitable for all ages. Rain date is Thursday, Aug. 14.
