A special part of summer is the sudden, floating glow of a firefly.
Whether you call them fireflies or lightning bugs, members of the insect order Lampyridae are truly fascinating. Participate in this summer's joint firefly monitoring project on select dates from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. - everyone is welcome!
