Crayfish, Crawdads and Mudbugs
with Emily Imhoff, PhD - Cincinnati Museum Center, Zoology Collections Manager
Thursday, November 3, 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.
No other animal captivates a child’s imagination like a crayfish. Yet, even after growing up hunting for crawdads, what do we really know about these creatures? How many species live in Adams County? How long can they live? How do they raise their young? These and other questions will be answered by the museum’s Emily Imhoff, an astacologist (crayfish scientist). She will share her knowledge of everything crayfish for the kid in all of us!
The Caves of Adams County
with Jonah Kidder, Author of Caves of Adams County (2015)
Thursday, November 10, 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.
Adams County is part of the karst region of Ohio and is dotted with caves of various shapes and sizes. Some you can walk into while others require that you crawl. Some caves are well known and steeped in local folk lore about criminal hideouts and bear dens, while others are less known and have rarely been visited. Join local cave explorer and mapper, Jonah Kidder to learn about his quest to find every cave in Adams County and to map their interiors for his recently released book.
