Detailed overview:
Firefly Watch
Title: Firefly Watch
Publisher: Museum of Science
Abstract: Firefly Watch combines an annual summer evening ritual with scientific research. Join a network of volunteers. Observe your own backyard. Track your progress online and interact with fellow Citizen Scientists. Help scientists map fireflies found in New England and beyond. No specific scientific training required. Participating in Firefly Watch requires just a fraction of your time. The Museum has teamed up with researchers from Tufts University and Fitchburg State College to track the fate of these amazing insects. With your help, we hope to learn about the geographic distribution of fireflies and their activity during the summer season. Fireflies also may be affected by human-made light and pesticides in lawns, so we hope to also learn more about those effects. [Information of the supplier]
