Lightening Bug Walk

It’s lightening bug season! Did you know that Mississippi is home to a rare type of firefly, found only in a few places in the world?!

Photuris frontalis, commonly called Snappy Syncs, are unusual because they can synchronize, lighting all at once in a symphony of light. Libby Hartfield, retired Director of the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, and her husband, Paul, biologist with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, have been studying Snappy Syncs in Mississippi since 2015 and found our population here at CCNC. Join them for a nighttime walk in the woods to see this amazing light display!

Come and experience synchronous fireflies with Paul and Libby Hartfield, Monday, May 20, 2019, 8:30 pm at the Clinton Nature Center.
