Celebrating the wonder of fireflies may be common in some parts of the world, but many people never have the opportunity to experience these remarkable creatures, and even more people already have forgotten their childhood memories of watching fireflies flash back and forth in the dark. And so, the Fireflyers International Network has designated the first weekend of July as an annual World Firefly Day for people to remember, get to know, and celebrate the firefly.

For information about how to set up an event, please take a look at our pamphlet.
