Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Join Julia Attaway, educator and local mom, to see if you can catch the last fireflies of the season!

During this hands-on program kids will have a chance to learn about fireflies in a light-hearted and playful atmosphere. Feel free to get ready for bed before you come out and chase fireflies in your pajamas.

Bring a jar or container and you can use your fireflies as night lights. But don't forget to let them out before you go to sleep! They have important work to do finding a mate and lighting the summer evenings.

Designed for children ages 4 through 8. Children must be accompanied by adults.

This program is supported by the Fort Tryon Park Trust and the Greenacre Foundation.
