It's June!

It's June and the firefly season is just beginning.  We have sightings of fireflies in the fields, along the creek and in the forest.  The night time temperatures are just perfect.  Last night, we observed 30-40 synchronous fireflies after 10:30 pm.

The 5th Annual PA Firefly Festival is now less than 2 weeks away and the major change this year is the reservation policy for the firefly walks.  We are now sold out and the registration is CLOSED.

Don't worry; there is still a lot to do at the festival during the day.  Come enjoy the live music (see the schedule below) performed by some of the most talented musicians in the area, eat a delicious taco or burger from Mobile Fresca or Annabelle's food trucks, peruse and learn about fireflies and other natural flora and fauna in the Allengheny National Forest, shop the festival merchandise or arts/crafts vendors for a gift or treasure and/or take a trek down the creek or in the forest to see the firefly habitats in the daylight.  You won't go away empty stomach or handed.

If you can't make it here the night of the festival and still want to see fireflies, you can book a guided Seasonal Firefly Walk on any night between June 16 and July 1 for a $5 per person donation to PAFF.  We will meet and depart from the Black Caddis Ranch at 9 pm for the creek to walk amongst the "Chinese Lanterns" and then hike back into the forest after 10 pm to watch the Synchronous shows.

Do you live in the area?  Don't want to fight festival crowds?  We are hosting a Locals' Night for the residents and seasonal campers of Forest County on Wednesday, June 14.  Meet us here at Black Caddis Ranch at 9 pm.

Last but not least... The "Silent Sparks" PAFF Benefit night is Wednesday, June 21st.  The world-renowned firefly expert and author Dr. Sara Lewis will be at West Forest High School to provide a multi-media presentation about her life experiences with fireflies.  Doors open at 6 pm and donations will be accepted at the door.  There will be basket raffles, 50/50, Silent Sparks books and PAFF merchandise for sale.  At 6:15, the short documentary film Brilliant Darkness: Hotaru in the Night will be shown to open the evening.  After Dr. Lewis' presentation, she will take questions from the audience and sign books.  This is a great way to learn about and experience fireflies if you are not an "outdoor" person or can't walk into the forest. You won't want to miss this inspirational and unique evening.

  1. We watched them all evening on Friday, June 16th, 2017. They surrounded our cabin, just west of Tionesta, at a height of 3 - 4 feet off the ground. Saturday's display wasn't showy or synchronous, but Friday's was spectacular!

  2. My ex-boyfriend is back after he left me for another girl.
    I'm so excited my broken Marriage has been restored & my boyfriend is back after he left me for another girl.
    I needed him back desperately because i loved him so much.
    I became very worried and needed help. as i was browsing through the internet,
    I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Unity can help get ex back fast and stop a divorce or breakup and so on , So I felt I should give him a try.
    I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it, then he did a (return Love spell) for me. 28 hours later,
    my boyfriend came back to me crying and begging for my forgiveness.

  3. This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 8TH OF APRIL 2017, And I saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful great spell caster called DR Omoluyi on the forum. I never believed it, because I've never heard nor learnt anything about magic before. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about spells, not until i visited ( doctoromoluyispelltemple@gmail.com ) and behold he did it for me and restored my marriage of 6 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me within 12 to 16 hours just as I have read on the forum.. I was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging me for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of expressions, and I don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you DR Omoluyi, you are a God sent to me and my entire family. Visit him today via Email on ( doctoromoluyispelltemple@gmail.com ). Am Lori Dante by name.

  4. Hello,
    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful
    to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex
    because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I
    wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in
    the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of,
    especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he
    dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
    When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a
    relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wantve him all to
    myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in
    saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There
    were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months
    right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When
    we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress
    on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things
    better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our
    relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they
    went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least
    took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and
    disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears
    running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in
    my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back
    to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i
    thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr
    alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return.
    Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and
    that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to
    love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till
    now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2
    month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad
    between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i
    have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving
    my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share
    my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope
    in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope
    and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his whatsapp number +2348075823891 or contact him
    direct with his email address alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com I thank you
    Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every
    social media or place i may go to.

    Mrs Tracy Grilli.
