Join the Fort Tryon Park Trust and NYC Urban Park Rangers for a fun night of crafts, games, stories, and firefly catching! Kids will learn about fireflies and create their own firefly to bring home. Feel free to get ready for bed before you come out and chase fireflies in your pajamas!

Bring a clear jar or container to hold any fireflies you catch. 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 4-10. Children must be accompanied by adults.

Please note: Space is limited and RSVP is required. To register, please email
