Every year in late June, a spectacular light show takes place at twilight. Stroll the grounds with naturalist Paul Keim to see and hear fireflies, katydids, moths and other nocturnal creatures. Use a sweep net to collect and view insects, then release them back into the night. The evening begins in Glyndor Gallery with a short tour of our current exhibition Gregory Crewdson: Fireflies. Don’t forget your flashlight! Ages 10 and older welcome with an adult.
