Hear that buzzing in the trees? Those are cicadas, one of nature's coolest creatures! Some cicadas spend up to 17 years underground before emerging as adults, and they have an awful lot to say about it! Come learn more about that buzzing sound and the animals that make it, and we'll see if we can find any!
