Join Greenwich Audubon Center for a virtual nighttime adventure to discover one of summer’s most special insects! Fireflies are nature’s own fireworks and their dazzling displays captivate the excitement of people of all ages. Our journey will start with an indoor introduction about the amazing lives of fireflies and how we can help protect them, followed by a virtual walk through our meadow to catch a glimpse of their mesmerizing bioluminescence.
Fun Fact: The light emitted from these special beetles is nearly 100% efficient, making it among the most efficient light sources ever discovered. Scientists have studied them to decrease the amount of energy we use in lighting our homes.
