By day, Thompson Century Farm in Spanish Fork is your typical family farm, but on summer evenings it transforms into something unexpected: a haven for native fireflies. Owner Diane Garcia’s firefly tours are spreading the joy of Utah’s fireflies and helping to educate kids about the wonders of their own backyard, as well as the threats of development & light pollution on firefly populations.
