Capitol Hill Cicada Tracking 2013 - Crowdsourcing Brood 2!

Last Date: 
Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 5 p.m.

cicada eyesBrood 2 of the 17 year cicadas are coming to the East Coast.... soon and very soon. These flying, red-eyed creatures will quickly be upon us, and the creative minds at WNYC's Radiolab have made a cicada tracker to follow the emergence of the brood. 

Join other Capitol Hill residents in contributing to this crowdsourced information about the cicadas in D.C.

Every Tuesday and Thursday from 5-7 p.m., a Southeast Branch staff member will be available to help you submit your cicada sighting to the tracker. 

By mid-June, you may have to wade through the cicada shells to get up to the library, but it will be worth it.
