The Allegany State Park Environmental Education and Recreation Department and WNYMBA are “glowing” about a new adventure taking place on Friday, June 28 from 9:00-11:00PM. Fat bikes and fireflies is a unique opportunity to witness the rare synchronous firefly from the seat of a bike. The dark hemlock forests and numerous streams make Allegany prime habitat for these luminous beetles. Fat bike rentals are available from Loud Performance (716) 386- 1171. Since the ride is off road and in the dark, this event is for riders 18 years old and up. Bring a light, red is preferred. Registration is required. Space is limited. Call 716 354 9101 ext 232 to secure your spot or email AlleganySP [at] parks [dot] ny [dot] gov (AlleganySP [at] parks [dot] ny [dot] gov.)
