Name: In Search of Magical Foxfire: Night Hikes!
Date: May 10, 2019
Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Is it magic? Fairies? An unexplained scientific phenomenon? 

It’s Orfelia fultoni, the only bioluminescent species of fly found in North America. The larvae live in stream banks among moss and rock cavities, such as the area along the Anna Ruby Falls Trail. Join us for a nighttime hike and educational experience in May and June to view the unique summertime phenomenon nicknamed “Foxfire”. We’ll walk up to the falls for nighttime viewing and exploration, then come back down the trail to view the magical foxfire. Walking on a paved trail is required.

Because safety is our #1 priority, no infants (under age 2 ) are allowed due to dark hiking conditions. Bring a flashlight,(preferably with a red lens) and wear close-toed shoes, (No flip-flops) as the hike is approximately one mile round trip. Thanks for understanding.
