Upcoming Lectures

Hobomok Skipper (Poanes hobomok)

I have two upcoming lectures in the Chicago metropolitan area. On Thursday, May 22 at 7:00 PM (that's tomorrow!) I will be presenting a talk on Illinois' butterflies at the North Park Nature Center (5801 N. Pulaski Road in Chicago).

Next Thursday, May 29 at 7:00 PM, I will be lecturing at the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie (follow the link and click on Calendar of Events). This talk is about fireflies. The pubic is invited to both lectures ($3.00 fee for Midewin lecture).

I attended an amazing lecture by a UF prof who was a firefly expert ... back in 1994 I think.
He had a battery powered fishing pole with a light at the end and could draw in different species by mimicing their signature flashes.
Pretty cool.

Are there actually fireflies to be seen already? We usually don't see them out here until about mid-June I think, with the largest numbers hitting around the 4th of July.

You've got to post on fireflies, or lightening bugs as my Texas side of the family liked to call them.
