Sounds of Insects Night Hike at Thorn Creek Nature Center on August 10

Registration required by August 8

Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)—August 1, 2014. 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 Sunday, August 10, 7:30 -9:30 explore the Sounds of the Insects Night Hike on the night of the super full moon. 

When the moon’s path is closest to the earth during the full moon phase it’s called a super moon.  The moon will appear bigger and brighter on this unique night.

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 August 8.
