With Social Distancing and CDC guidelines in place, The Pennsylvania Firefly Festival (PAFF) will provide two nights of interpretive firefly programs at two separate locations, Hearts Content ANF Recreation Day Use Area on Saturday, June 13, and Loleta Recreation Day Use Area* on Saturday, June 20.  PAFF Firefly Guides will meet up to 25 registered participants at 9:30 pm at the designated location and provide a short informational program. Then, the guides will help locate, observe and identify the fireflies in that location.  Space is limited to ensure physical distancing, minimize environmental impact and ensure a good experience for everyone.  All participants are asked to pre-register ($5 per person + processing fees) for the preferred date and location.

Participants are encouraged to bring camp chairs or walking sticks.

Parents know best.
