Cecily Cicada StoryWalk® – Ask a Naturalist Event

June 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join us for a fun, informal event celebrating all things cicadas on Saturday, June 5 from 10 – 11am at Kensington’s Clum Kennedy Park (10298 Frederick Avenue)! Families and children are invited to “Ask a Naturalist” all of their burning cicada questions – like why are they so loud?!
We will be joined by Peihan Orestes, a Maryland Master Naturalist who loves all things creepy and crawly! She’s often found at Woodend Nature Sanctuary, leading school groups on walks or flipping logs to look at the creatures underneath. Peihan used to work in a research lab, but is much happier spending her time outside!
Families are encouraged to enjoy the Cecily Cicada StoryWalk before or after the event and pick up a craft kit at nearby Noyes Children’s Library (10237 Carroll Pl).
This event is sponsored by the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation and the Town of Kensington.
This just in ! No masks are required at this event.
