Event description
Join us for a once in a seventeen year opportunity to check out the Brood X cicadas at Cherry Hill Nature Preserve.

About this event

Come out and explore Cherry Hill Nature Preserve with Detroit Audubon for an opportunity to hear and see this natural phenomena up close! We are hoping for a sunny day for a more active bunch, but we will be there either way!

In case you're new to Brood X, it's a group of periodical cicadas, which are different than annual cicadas. They spend almost their whole lives a foot or two underground, living on sap from tree roots. Then, in the spring of their 13th or 17th year, depending on the type, mature cicada nymphs emerge for a brief adult stage, synchronously and in huge numbers. They mate and then die, and their newly hatched offspring drop to the ground and burrow in for the next 13 or 17 years.
