Virtual Fire Fly Walk and Count

June 22 @ 8:00 pmJuly 3 @ 9:30 pm

Active SWV and the NPS are striving to continue our efforts to keep our Get Active in the Park participants engaged with ideas to keep them physically active while staying safe. So, just as in years past Active SWV and the NPS will be hosting our annual FireFly Walk with a twist. This year Community Captain Bob and NPS Ranger Leah would like you to join them online in a week-long Virtual FireFly Event.

What does “virtual” mean? This means you will check-in online with this event page to interact with the Community Captains and rangers. You will walk and hike on your own following safety guidelines for your local area. Anyone can participate!

We are asking everyone to find their favorite trail, field, yards, or just go on a stroll through your neighborhood and observe Fire Flies with us. We would like to get all of our participants to help the WV DNR with their FireFly Study while you are out for our event. More information about the WV DNR project can be found at this link:

Active SWV Community Captain and NPS Ranger will also be posting educational information about Fire Flies in the event page for you to enjoy.

We are asking you to go on a FireFly walk on your own time in your neighborhood, post your photos on the event page, let us know how many you counted, ask questions, and learn more about Fire Flies with us.

Please follow all state and local guidelines if you plan to do your FireFly walk in a public space.
