Firefly Day 2009

On April 11, 2009, the Museum kicked off its second season of Firefly Watch with a day-long celebration, featuring special activities and presentations from our firefly researchers. Participants were treated to a wealth of information on fireflies from around the world, and here, we feature videos from the researchers' presentations.
