Fireflies produce a chemical reaction inside their bodies that allows them to light up in a process known as bioluminescence. But WHY do they do it?

Most spiders have eight eyes. In some species four of those eyes have a relective layer behind their retinas, called a tapetum. But WHAT makes them reflective?!

WHAT birds can we see at night that aren't active during the day?

Seven Islands interpretive rangers will answer these mysteries and many more during the June Night Eyes series. During a 1.5 mile, sunset to dark hike, we will explore the wonders of the park after hours!
