Jayhawk Audubon Society September Program
September 28, 2015 - 7:30 p.m. - Free to the public
Trinity Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 1245 New Hampshire, Lawrence KS
Dr. Mary McCoy, retired from the Biology faculty at Washburn University, Topeka, Kansas, will present “Cicadas: What All of the Ruckus is Really About.” Her presentation will feature images, stories, and information about cicadas, both the 17-year species and the typical annual cicadas. She will discuss their lives underground, emergence, molting, songs, and reproduction, plus their role in the food chain as food for birds and other predators.
Dr. McCoy earned a Ph.D. in Entomology from the University of Kansas, and then taught what she considers the fun courses, such as entomology, zoology and parasitology, and became enamored with tropical rainforest biology during her 33 years at Washburn University.
Optional dinner with Dr. Mary McCoy - 5:00 p.m.
