Join our Team
The PA Firefly Festival Inc. is a non-profit and as such, we rely on a dedicated team of people to make everything happen. We'd love to have you as part of our firefly team. Whether you are available year-round...or just for the festival, let us know you're interested by filling out the online form and we'll find you a position that's a perfect fit. Festival volunteers and guides need to be available for training the week before festival. If you love fireflies, or nature and the forest, we'd love to have you.
We welcome educators, students, scientists, or forest-related agencies and organizations to participate in our Nature Center exhibition. If you have information to share about fireflies, insects, forest habitats and/or environmental concerns. We offer a limited number of travel stipends to educators/researchers presenting at the festival. We accept applications through June 1 for each festival.
Become a Professional Firefly Guide: The public demand and interest in fireflies is a growing tourism opportunity in Pennsylvania. Professional Guides or Outfitters who may be interested in learning more about how to incorporate private firefly tours into their business can join us for a training. PA Firefly Festival, Inc. provides training and materials to those wishing to learn how to guide tourists safely and responsibly to known firefly habitat sites. You will learn how to identify and protect the fireflies and their habitats for future tourists. Fill out this form to register for the 2023 Guide Training in March, 2023. Trained Guides will be endorsed by PAFF and listed on our website to refer firefly tourists for direct booking with the trained guide.
