Join us as we celebrate the annual return of flashing fireflies to Theodore Roosevelt Park, which surrounds the Museum, at the Creatures of Light Tweetup on Tuesday, July 10!
The Museum’s Tumblr followers are invited to explore the current exhibition Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence after hours and enjoy a beer and wine reception. Discover the many creatures that blink, glow, flash, and glitter, and find out why they do it. Learn how fireflies use light signals to communicate, walk through an interactive re-creation of a bioluminescent bay in Puerto Rico, see dramatic models of glowing deep-sea creatures, and more. Around 8:30 pm, weather permitting, we’ll head outside to observe live fireflies in the park surrounding the Museum.
The Creatures of Light Tweetup will be held at the American Museum of Natural History on Tuesday, July 10. Please RSVP here - we’ll send you a confirmation email with all the details.
