Firefly Viewing Nights

Gift and Garden Store

Join us for special after-hours access to the Arboretum for viewing fireflies.

Experience the magic of summer nights at the Arb with hundreds of fireflies flashing through the sky. We’re staying open late for select Firefly Viewing Nights. Bring your family – and a camera – and marvel at the wonder of these glowing winged beetles (also known as lightning bugs).
