Did you know there are many species of fireflies in Ohio? Or that some of them are cannibals, while others don’t even light up? Create a new tradition with us as we discover the magic of an evening firefly light show. Join us for a leisurely hike as we learn about these delightful creatures and discover the magic of a firefly lightshow.

This naturalist led program will highlight the natural history of fireflies as we explore both forest and meadow habitats. Terrain covered will be mostly flat and we’ll move at a leisurely pace.
