Lycoming Arts Upcoming Events 2024


Summer Firefly Experience 2024
at Robert Porter Allen Natural Area

This Summer, join Lycoming Arts at the Robert Porter Allen Natural Area for an immersive Firefly Experience. Combining art, science, and nature, the event is a collaborative effort between Lycoming Arts, Bucknell University and the team behind the natural area project.

The event will be held in July (details to follow based on the Firefly hatch) at the entrance of the natural area, located at the natural area at 1724 Sylvan Dell Rd, Armstrong Township, PA 17702. The experience will take viewers into a darkened barn on the preserve where professor and firefly expert Sarah Lower of Bucknell University will give viewers a dose of science education. Lower will discuss the environmental conditions necessary for fireflies to flourish, and how they are working to create that possibility at the natural area. Viewers will venture out from the barn space to the various paths leading to the natural area as Sarah leads a walking tour alongside some Bucknell University students. Firefly crafts will be provided to kids in attendance, courtesy of Lycoming Arts.
