Local entomologists believe that the New Canaan Land Trust’s Firefly Sanctuary is home to one of the largest populations of fireflies in our region. During a few weeks each summer, the fireflies light up the night sky as they try to find and attract a mate. Join guides from the New Canaan Land Trust on a short walk through the property, which will culminate with a viewing of the firefly show. The walk will last approximately 25 minutes, and participants are welcome to stay and enjoy the firefly display for as long as they wish.
We will be offering guided walks and viewings on three evenings: June 30, July 1, and July 2.
Participants should bring a flashlight and wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and a long sleeve shirt (it gets buggy). Our walk will traverse wooded trails with sometimes uneven terrain.
