Field Trips to See the 17-year Cicadas!

Fri., June 14, from 11 am to 1 pm (no rain date set)

Sat., June 15, from 11 am to 1 pm (rain date June 16)


Free; registration required; space limited to 30 people per tour



Visit one of the nearby 17-year cicada hotspots with Yale Peabody Museum entomologist Larry Gall. The site we will visit, on private property northeast of New Haven, requires a relatively easy 15-minute walk in. Children must be accompanied by an adult; not recommended for children under 6 and the trail is not suitable for strollers. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. You should receive an auto-generated e-mail immediately after you submit your registration. However, because of the nature of our registration system, you are not considered registered until you receive a second confirmation e-mail from us. That second confirmation e-mail will include the meeting/parking location and any other details you will need to know.


If you do not get a spot on one of these trips, can't make it at those times, or would rather just see the cicadas on your own, CLICK HERE to find out where you can go. In addition, given the popularity of these two trips, we are likely to offer more in the near future.
