Nature's Fireworks

Known as “the firefly lady,” Lynn Faust is a researcher and author of the first comprehensive firefly guide ever published for eastern and central North America, titled Fireflies, Glow-Worms, and Lightning Bugs. Lynn will share her knowledge and enthusiasm for these beloved insects based on her decades of field work tracking their behavior and lives. Learn about their secret lives and adaptations, discover how you can identify the many species in your neighborhood, and discover simple ways you can help them flourish.

Lynn Faust is an advisory consultant on firefly studies with state and national parks in Tennessee, South Carolina, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, and New York and an on-site scientific consultant with BBC Nature, the Discovery Channel, and National Geographic, among many other media outlets. She has also aided in identification and educational advisement for the Cincinnati Museum Center and published surveys of the fireflies of Mammoth Cave National Park, Congaree National Park, and the Allegheny National Forest. Faust has presented around the world on the topic of fireflies and published numerous scientific papers.

Following the lecture, Dr. Cory Christopher, Director of the Center for Conservation will moderate an open discussion between the presenter and the audience. Moving beyond the traditional Q&A, audience members will have the opportunity to network with each other about local initiatives relevant to the topic, and share ways that everyone can contribute.
