Firefly Watch

Spotting fireflies is a special part of warm summer nights, but lately, they seem to be disappearing from our landscape. For the past few years, the team at the Museum of Science along with university researchers, tracked these amazing insects through Firefly Watch.

Starting in Spring 2018, Mass Audubon will be taking over the project and will work with Tufts University to continue this exciting research.

  • We look forward to watching for fireflies this spring and summer!
