Firefly Atlas

May 8, 2024

Firefly Atlas is a national program designed to better understand and conserve the diversity of fireflies in North America. Fireflies use a pattern of light producing flashes to find and recognize each other. Participants will first attend a training session at the center to discuss how to collect data for Firefly Atlas and how to recognize flash patterns. Using monitoring supplies provided by RTPEC, volunteers will choose a local observation site. Participants will start monitoring after sunset and record information on habitat, weather, firefly species, and flash patterns.
