‘Insect walk’ set for this Saturday

By Staff | Aug 27, 2010

SHEPHERDSTOWN – The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor an evening “insect walk” along the C&O Canal across from Shepherdstown at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The walk will be led by local insect expert Wil Hershberger, who is coauthor of “The Songs of Insects,” a book and audio CD published by Houghton-Mifflin Co.

These walks are family-oriented events that are especially popular with young children but anyone with an interest is welcome to participate. There is no fee.

However, space will be limited so those who would like to participate should make a reservation as soon as soon as possible by contacting Peter Smith at pvsmith@frontiernet.net or 304-876-1139.

The walking group will assemble in the large C& O Canal parking lot on Canal Road, three-tenths of a mile south of the Shepherdstown bridge.

From there, Hershberger will lead an exploration of fields and roadsides near the Canal.
