Perfect Location to See the Special Smokies Fireflies and Help a Great Cause at the Same Time!

Every spring the hottest ticket in the Great Smoky Mountains is to get the trolley passes to see the synchronous firefly event in the Elkmont area of the National Park. This tickets area hard to come by since they are limited and sellout quickly.

If you do take the trolley to the event, you get to wait on lines before you go, deal with about 1,000 people a night milling around on the Little River Hiking Trail, and then wait even longer on line to take the shuttle bus back to the Sugarlands Parking are where you left your car.

How would you like to enjoy this amazing natural display of synchronized bioluminescence in a place with ample parking, no crowds, and access to a true firefly expert after enjoying some heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks in the exclusive Norton Creek Sanctuary which borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP)?

What we feel is the most important nonprofit doing research in our national park and beyond: Discover Life in America will be hosting this fundraising event and there are a few spots left for the nights of June 5th or 7th!

Your purchase of tickets being sold to the Discover Life in America Synchronous Firefly fundraising event at $100 each help support groundbreaking discoveries made in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park where this organization help find 8,095 new species that reside in the GSMNP and 951 new species to science!

You are not helping what we feel is the most important biological study to take place in the national park, you are sure to have the best Smoky Mountains synchronized firefly experience possible!

For reservations or more information, e-mail Todd Witcher at or call (865)430-4757.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
