    Fireflies or lightning bugs? No matter what you call them, come out and learn about nature's favorite flashy things with MetroParks of Butler County. We'll start in the shelter and learn a little about the insects' life cycle, why they flash, and how to attract more of them to your yard. Then we'll take an easy 1/2 mile hike to see lightning bugs in action under the stars.

  • Secret Stamps- Sebald MetroPark

    July 06, 2024 12:00pm - 2:00pm

    Are you a super sleuth? A maven of maps and mysteries? Uncover the secret world of Letterboxing. Letterboxers around the world follow clues to publicly accessible hidden boxes containing unique stamps and logbooks to record who has completed the challenges. Don't have a stamp or logbook? We've got you covered. Each group can make their own stamp and logbook before heading out on the self-guided letterbox hunt (one per group, while supplies last). The letterbox challenge can be started any time in the two-hour window, but completion times will vary depending on the speed of your group.
