Audubon sponsoring talk at Cacapon State Park
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor a special talk about the songs of insects at Cacapon State Park in Morgan County the evening of Friday, October 12.
The speaker will be local insect expert Wil Hershberger, who is coauthor of The Songs of Insects, a new book and audio CD published last spring by Houghton-Mifflin Company.
The program will be held in the Daniel Morgan Room of the park's Lodge starting at 7 p.m.
Admission will be free and anyone with an interest is welcome to attend.
Hershberger, who lives in Hedgesville, has been a naturalist all his life.
He has been photographing and recording the natural world for more than a decade and his work has been published in magazines, calendars, and books.
His recordings of insects, birds, and frogs are archived at the Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
