Lightning Bug Jubilee

July 3, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Did you spend early summer evenings catching fireflies as a child? This all too short fireworks display by these tiny luminescent insects is a wonder to behold. Join us for a short talk about these fascinating creatures and take a walk with a trained volunteer or naturalist to discover when and where to find the different fireflies that call Wheaton Regional Park home. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to comfortably watch nature’s fireworks! Children under 5 Free; Rain cancels the program.
