Enjoy the remaining summer evenings by joining the firefly watch!

The Museum of Science in Boston is asking regular folks like you and me (and our firefly-loving kids) to observe the fireflies that frequent our habitats.

We typed in our first field journal entry tonight. The website provides a simple explanation of the differences in color, flash pattern, and behaviors that you and your kids will enjoy. This type of work is a fantastic way to teach kids concepts about habitat, observation, and field data.

Join in the fun!
