An event every day that begins at 8:30 pm, repeating until July 3, 2019

Location: Firefly Sanctuary

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 20 minutes, and participants are welcome to stay and enjoy the firefly display for as long as they wish.

Please note, participants should bring a flashlight, wear sturdy shoes, and bring insect repellent. Our walk will traverse wooded trails with sometimes uneven terrain.
