The first light of fireflies in the spring sparks joy for many with reminders of childhood, chasing these winged beetles of the glowworm family. But what do we really know about these bioluminescent creatures that are one of few that live on land? How do they make their light? Where, specifically, do they live? What do they eat? Dr. Clyde Sorenson will share about the natural history of these special insects, including past and current species distributions and opportunities to help track these critters.
