Discover the Grounds » Lightning Bug Hunt

Join us for a dusk lightning-bug hunt and celebration with University of Arkansas Entomologist Don Steinkraus at the Skyspace Meadow and Amphitheater. Families are welcome! Learn about the transformation of the ecosystem from day to night and the secrets fireflies hold beyond their flickering lights. Steinkraus will train you in the art of catching fireflies and how to safely jar them for research and observation. The evening will include artmaking, music, performance, and fun activities surrounding the luminous firefly.

Free, no registration required.  Sponsored by Blue Rhino.
