Living Light: Fireflies, Light Pollution & What You Can Do To Help

Tuesday, June 8, 2021,
5:30 pm
to 6:30 pm

An evening meadow with fireflies.

Why do fireflies flash? Because they want to be seen! But their unique bioluminescent signals can be obscured by street lamps, house lights, and other sources of nighttime light pollution — and if we’re not careful, our lights might extinguish theirs forever. Join entomologist Avalon C.S. Owens for an engaging talk about her doctoral research on this understudied aspect of firefly conservation, and to learn some simple solutions that can help fireflies, moths, and other nocturnal animals coexist with humans on our increasingly urbanized planet.

5:30 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Closed captioning will be available. To get the login details, please register here.
