About This Event

A unique after-hours opportunity to encounter some of New Jersey’s nocturnal species and see our meadows alight with fireflies!

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to encounter some of the New Jersey nocturnal species as we open our property after the sun goes down. Let your eyes adjust to darkness as you meander through Duke Farms meadow habitat during this special “Duke Farms After Dark” program.  Jon Dugan, Education Coordinator, will discuss firefly ecology, the citizen science initiative called “Firefly Watch” and then take you into the field for a 1.5-mile hike to experience the magic of this bioluminescent creature.

NOTE: To protect wildlife and the preserve the experience for others, we do not encourage the use of flashlights during this event. Please dress appropriately for the weather.

This class is designed for those ages 16+ with an interest in citizen science.
