Flickering Fireflies

As the sun sets low and the moon rises in the sky, gentle and scattered flickers of light begin to appear around you, a welcomed light show on a warm summer night. Fireflies, lightning bugs, glow worms, or moon bugs. Whatever you call them, Pennsylvania’s state insect is attractive to most anyone who sees them, but did you know that there isn’t just one type of firefly, or one color of light that they make? Join a park naturalist for a short presentation on the different firefly species in Pennsylvania, learn how and why they produce light, and then head out to try and find and identify the fireflies putting on a show in the night sky.

Meet at the campground amphitheater.
