Join retired biologist and Montgomery County resident, Clarence Hickey for a lecture and discussion about the area's 17-year periodical cicada.

Montgomery County is home to a brood of 17-year periodical cicadas. They visited us with great gusto in 1987 and in 2004. Expect to see them in May and June of 2021. They rise out of the ground in an enormous, frightening mass. Yet, these cicadas are not dangerous; they do not sting, bite or carry diseases. And, they do not eat garden vegetables! Their emergence from underground provides us with a rare opportunity to observe them close-up. Look for them, especially on and around trees. Our stable, tree-filled environment makes their cohabitation with us possible. In this PowerPoint lecture, Clarence Hickey examines the intersection of cicada natural history and our human history.
