Fantastic Firefly Hike - Family Fun

Description

But what is all that flashing about? We'll first spend some time inside discussing the science behind the glow, and then follow-up by exploring the trail to find fireflies at the sanctuary.

Learn how you can join a national network of community scientists by observing fireflies in your own backyard and helping scientists map our country's firefly population.

Suggested minimum age 5 and up.
