Come get your "Light ON"!

We are seeing good synchronous firefly activity this week leading up to the festival this Saturday.  The night time temperatures are rising and perfect for emerging adult fireflies.  We have noticed more fireflies emerging earlier around 9:30pm. Synchronous displays don't start until well after 10pm.  If you are in the Kellettville area or camping in the Allegheny National Forest, you should get out this week and look for them.  Please feel free, to comment and post here or on our Facebook https://www.facebook.com/PAFireflyFestival/?ref=bookmarks or Twitter https://twitter.com/PaFirefly pages any sightings and observations.  We would love to hear from you about your experience.

The festival is gearing up for our 4th Annual PA Firefly Festival next Saturday, June 25 from noon to midnight.  Come for the music, food and fun during the day, and stay for the firefly shows after 10pm.  You will learn a lot about the diversity and importance of fireflies in the ANF. FREE Parking is available on the grounds of the Black Caddis Ranch B&B.  The weather is predicted to be good, and we are expecting crowds.  Be sure to bring your camp chairs, wear sturdy shoes or boots (no flip-flops or ballet slippers) and long pants and long sleeves for the firefly walks.

New this year, the Tionesta Lions Club will be serving a Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, morning 7-10am to campers and residents.  The proceeds benefit the Forest County Relay for Life, so come eat breakfast before you break camp.
