The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

Walk through the night woodland and be greeted by the different firefly species of Goodenow Grove Nature Preserve, where you will experience varying frequencies of sparkling light. A short introduction on firefly ecology will allow for the gradual transition to darkening skies. We will then embark on a slow and quiet walk through their habitat.
