Coincidentally, one of the inside page headlines of yesterday's local newspaper said:
FIREFLY FESTIVAL IS SATURDAY AT HIGH BRIDGE
The article read:
High Bridge State Park invites families to bring dad out to High Bridge the night before Father's Day (June 15) and enjoy the spectacular sight of synchronous fireflies by the thousands in the treetops below the High Bridge. Craig Guthrie, the park's chief ranger, will give a brief talk about these curious insects with their abdomens aglow. Bring your camera, as you'll want to record this curious event of nature. Waverly Garner, the Park's AmeriCorps volunteer, will guide guests starting at 8:30 PM from the parking lot on River Road. The distance to High Bridge is approximately one mile from this parking lot. The event is free, but a parking fee applies at the River Road parking lot. Be sure to bring drinking water and be prepared to stay out after dark.
