Here is a list of events celebrating National Trails Day on Saturday and some surrounding events throughout the weekend:
Stay through dusk at Congaree for a chance to see the Photinus Carolinus - or, a species of fireflies that blink in synchronization. Synchronized fireflies are rare and have only been recorded in a few locations in the US, and it only occurs during a 2 week period between May and June. Park rangers suggest the elevated boardwalk as the best place to spot the fireflies! Read more about the fireflies in this week's article in The State.
Other events: On June 1, there will be a Nature at Night guided tour. Registration is required call (803) 788-2706 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
