We encourage you to go out at night in your own backyards or neighborhoods to observe the firefly activity for the next week to 2 weeks. You should try to eliminate all lights possible, wear long sleeves and pants, if you need to wear bug spray, don't handle the lightning bugs, and bring your patience. You may need to sit and wait until 11:00 pm to see all the different species.
We have activities for kids and families all day. Seven different forest naturalists will be here and our resident entomologist, Dr Denise Piechnik is going to return, they have exhibits and activities for children of all ages to learn more about the fireflies and the habitats.
