From the Friends of Dyke Marsh: Please join the Friends of Dyke Marsh on Wednesday evening September 11 at Huntley Meadows Park to hear Will Hershberger, naturalist, award-winning nature photographer and nature sound recordist who will explore the world of singing insects with images and sound recordings. We will learn where to find them; how to identify them by looks and songs; how and why they sing and how we hear their songs. In a departure from our usual practice, we will hear Will’s talk at 7 p.m. and then take an “insect listening” walk led by Will at 8 p.m. We have to limit the number of people on the walk to 20 people; if you wish to go on the 8 p.m. walk, please register in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program is sponsored by the Friends of Dyke Marsh and cosponsored by the Potowmack Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society.
