The 17-year cicadas, also known as Magicicada, return to the northeast in spring 2013. Although sometimes called locusts, cicadas are actually part of the order Hemiptera. Public programming around the exhibit includes art, films and cicada collateral and opportunities to learn more about this fascinating bug!
