Fireflies are fun for the entire family.
These luminescent beetles are members of the family Lampyridae. They are reported to be most active in the Wisconsin between July 1 and August 26th and Illinois between May 8th and October 5th, so we are sure to see a few.
Come out to the Nature at the Confluence to learn more about these amazing insects. We will read a story, learning about behavior, life cycle, and why they glow. Then we will try to catch and observe a few on a nature hike.
