The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster has a new Summer Series called Lunch & Learn. We are proud to present The Secret Lives of Fireflies with Science Educator Don Salvatore Monday, August 7, 2017 at 11:30am.

 Watching fireflies is a special part of warm summer nights in New England and a memorable experience. We watch, we enjoy, and as kids we use to catch them in a jar to get an up-close look at them. However, do we really know what these creatures of the night are saying? Why are they flashing, are they bugs or beetles, are they male or female? Fireflies, also known as “lightning bugs” are so much more than a flash in the night. Join Don Salvatore for this fascinating and enlightening look into the secret lives of fireflies!
 
Don Salvatore grew up in Weymouth, a small coastal town south of Boston. He spent his professional career as a science educator at the Children’s Museum in Dartmouth, the Roanoke Valley Science Museum in Virginia, and for the last 36 years, at the Museum of Science in Boston where he founded and coordinated the Firefly Watch and citizen science program. He has taught programs in all the sciences; biology, physics, chemistry, geology, meteorology and biochemistry. Through them all, he has come to a deeper understanding of natural history.
