Stamford Museum and Nature Center


Young elementary


Event description: This all-new program explores the many things that glow in the dark, from the stars featured in the Two Artists Look at the Sky exhibition to the animals that use bioluminescence in their daily lives. Participants are turned into fireflies and can make their own spark in the dark. After a hike on the trails, return to the Overbrook Nature Center for a chance to paint glow-in-the-dark masterpieces under black light. Participants are asked to bring a flashlight. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
