New Firefly Species in the Cache

June 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

TThe cypress firefly, lightening bug, (Photuris walldoxeyi) was first documented in early 2019 in high-quality cypress swamps in Mississippi, Tennessee and Indiana. A confirmed Illinois sighting was recorded at the Heron Pond boardwalk in June 2019. Natural heritage biologist Christina Feng will tell us about fireflies of Illinois while leading a night hike on the Todd Fink-Heron Pond Trail to the Heron Pond boardwalk in search of the cypress firefly. To reserve your spot on the hike call Molie Oliver at 618-657-2064.
