2024 Fireflies Event

Summer Firefly Experience 2024
at Robert Porter Allen Natural Area

Join us on Thursday, July 11 2024 at 8:15pm to experience fireflies at Robert Porter Allen Natural Area in South Williamsport in this 3rd Annual Firefly Event! The evening begins with a screening of Diana Lehr's short film A Midsummer Nocturne that captures the remarkable, ephemeral and intricate world of fireflies. Afterwards, join guided tours of the Natural Area and learn about fireflies from firefly expert Sarah Lower, a Biology Professor from Bucknell University, and her students.

Lycoming Arts will provide Art2Go firefly kids crafts.

This special opportunity to connect with art, nature and science outside the walls of a museum, will celebrate the temporal lifespan of these winged, bioluminescent insects, whose numbers are rapidly dwindling.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's Environmental Education Grants Program has provided financial and other support for this event.

Space is limited, so please register! 

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 at the entrance of the natural area, located at the natural area at 1724 Sylvan Dell Rd, Armstrong Township, PA 17702.
