Nature’s Fireworks

Join a Darke County Park’s Naturalist on Thursday, July 5th at 8:30pm at Shawnee Prairie Preserve (4267 St. Rt. 502 West) as we explore the glowing world of our favorite summer-time insect, the Firefly! Also known as lightning bugs and glow worms, these fascinating insects are still the study of scientists as they try to reproduce the bioluminescence to replace our household light bulbs. By the end of the evening you will learn how these amazing “bugs” light up the summer night sky. Dress for the outdoors as we’ll complete our program with a hike to witness first hand, “Nature’s Fireworks.” This program is FREE and fun for the whole family! For more information on this and other programs offered by the Darke County Park District, call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165 or visit our website at
