Firefly Fandango lights up Spring Valley

Jul 03, 2019
Witness one of nature’s marvels as the summer sun sets on Spring Valley’s prairies and woods. 

Firefly Fandango is set for 8:45 to 9:45 p.m., July 13 and 14 at the Nature Center, 1111 E. Schaumburg Road. Families will be taken on a twilight wagon ride to view the light show seen on mid-summer evenings. Other activities will include a short discussion about fireflies and how they produce their fascinating light. 

"The amount of fireflies seen at Spring Valley is unbelievable and something I enjoy witnessing year after year," said Mary Rice, education coordinator for Spring Valley. "Viewing the fireflies at this event is a more exciting experience than in my own backyard. I am still amazed how many fireflies can be seen at once!” 

Cost is $4 per person for residents and $5 per person for non-residents. Beverages will be served. Registration is required. Day-of registration is available until noon, July 13 and 14. 

Register for Saturday, July 13 and/or Sunday, July 14. For more information, call 847-985-2100.
