Lights in the Night Family Event

June 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

Join Friends of Lower Haw at a family friendly event at the Lower Haw River State Natural Area.  Enjoy the lights of fireflies (lightning bugs) as they come out for the evening. Learn some facts about these fascinating beetles and catch some for closer inspection.  After we release our friends we will walk over to the Haw River bridge to see the almost full moon rise to color the Haw with magical light.

No pre-registration needed.  All ages are welcome! Meet in the lower parking lot off Bynum Church Road at 8:00 pm.  Bring insect repellent, water, and a jar for firefly catching. Also bring a net to catch fireflies if you have one.  Please note there are no restroom facilities at this location.

Directions:  From US 15-501 at the Haw River, turn onto Durham-Eubanks Road and follow it to the stop sign.  At the stop sign, go straight across onto Bynum Church Road. Follow Bynum Church Road uphill past the church, then continue downhill and the State Parks parking lot will be on the right. Questions:  Contact LowerHawEvents@gmail.com
