On Earth Day, April 22, Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, Mass., teams up with the Boston Museum of Science to teach kids how they can assist scientists in understanding why fireflies are disappearing.

After an hour of firefly-related crafts, kids can take Firefly Watch Citizen Science Training. Then from May to August they can chart the occurrence of fireflies in their own backyards.

For information, see the museum's website.
