Celebrate the magic of ‘firefly season’ with an evening firefly walk at Cool Spring Preserve with Ariel Firebaugh. Stroll along the trails of the preserve searching for and learning about all the various fireflies we see in this area.
The group will assemble at 8:15 pm on the back deck of Cool Spring Preserve. Ariel will lead a brief discussion about fireflies before the group heads off into the preserve in search of these magical creatures.
Some of the things Ariel may highlight on this walk include:
- How many firefly species are there?
- Why do fireflies flash?
- What do fireflies eat?
- Are firefly populations declining?
Participants should bring a flashlight and be prepared (if you choose) to walk through high grass and woods, however much of the walk will take place on the trails. Tucking pants legs into socks and spraying them with a DEET-based insect repellent is recommended.
The walk will not take place if it is raining.
