Synchronous Fireflies Hike
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 09:30 PM
Allegany State Park - Red House Area
(716) 354-9121

This summer, Allegany State Park's Environmental Education Department will offer hikes to view the rare Synchronous Fireflies – once thought to exist in only a handful of places in the world.

The Photinus Carolinus species, also known as the Synchronous Firefly, flashes only from late June to mid-July.

In 2012, the Firefly International Research and Education Team (FIRE Team) came to study the local firefly species, and confirmed its existence in the Branch Creek area of Allegheny National Forest.

Adele Wellman, Lead Naturalist for Allegany State Park, and her team of environmental educators along with numerous volunteers received training necessary to identify this species. The Park Naturalists were able to identify the Synchronous Firefly and confirm its first sighting in New York State.

For information on other programs, please check Allegany State Park's activity schedule at www.facebook.com/alleganystatepark , or call 354-9101 ext. 232.
