Are you interested in participating in a cicada citizen science project? Check out: Urban Buzz: A 17-Year Cicada Citizen Science Project.
The folks behind the Your Wild Life website are hoping people will collect cicadas and send them to them for a science project to see how Urbanization impacts periodical cicadas.
They want samples from forests, from cities, from suburbs, from farms – in other words, across a gradient from low to high urbanization.
They have instructions on their site as to which cicadas to collect and where to send them.
Time is wasting though. The 17 year cicadas will only be around so long, so you have to act fast.
