Firefly Night | What’s happening in Fairfield County, CT

Firefly Night

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 06/25/2021
Experience the magic of nature's fireworks! Join us at Greenwich Audubon Center for a nighttime adventure to discover one of summer’s most special insects! Fireflies are nature’s own fireworks and their dazzling displays captivate the excitement of people of all ages. Our journey will start with an introduction about the amazing lives of fireflies and how we can help protect them. Then as darkness falls you will have a chance to walk through our meadow and catch a glimpse of their mesmerizing bioluminescence.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

As we continue to prioritize your safety we ask that you PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PLASTIC HOLE-PUNCHED JARS (NO GLASS PLEASE) since they will not be provided this year.  

This IN-PERSON program has a limited capacity and will be held entirely outdoors. All participants are required to wear a face mask covering for the duration of the program.
