Seasonal Campfire: Glittering Fireflies

Join us for a unique seasonal park experience as we gather around a campfire for a fiery lesson in some of nature’s nocturnal friends. For the summer we will be taking a close look at our flying LED lights: the fireflies. We will be sharing a few of our favorite firefly myths from around the world, learning how they chemically produce light (using a diabolically named substance), putting together our own glowing firefly action figures to take home, and enjoying some s’mores before turning our attention to the woods for a firefly frolic! Participants are encouraged to bring their own insect repellent. All fireflies will be released at the end of the program.


Children under age 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
