A once in a lifetime experience happens this summer — two broods of cicadas emerging simultaneously! Let's make some noise! This maximum volume experience only lasts for a few weeks. Celebrate the phenomenon with activities and a hike geared around cicadas – what makes them special, where they've been and when we'll get to see them again.
