Now that spring is over, most of the birds have raised their families and are much quieter.They are staying out of the heat. But the male crickets, cicadas, grasshoppers, and katydids are making themselves known with loud mating calls. Night times can get loud and we can not call them vocalizations because insects use other parts of their bodies to make the sounds. 

Join education coordinator Michelle Campanis and naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales via Zoom for "Songs of Summer Insects." We will look at our local insects and just how they make all that racket!

The August Nature Supper Club presentation is hosted by the UT Arboretum Society. The program is free but you must register to be sent a link to watch the live presentation and the recording at your convenience. Register at under Programs.
