The cost is $10 for member adults, $5 for member chil- dren, $14 for nonmember adults, and $7 for nonmember children. Rain date is July 13. Register online through the events calendar at . On Thursday, July 18, Revive the Roots at Mowry Commons, 374 Farnum Pike in Smithfield, is host- ing a firefly walk from 8 to 9:30 p.m., weather permitting. Visitors can bring flashlights for the event, described as "a magi- cal evening garden walk," and can enjoy campfire camaraderie and watch for fireflies by the light of a full moon, states a release. "Last summer was a great year for fireflies here, and we're starting to see them again this summer," said Hannah Martin, community builder at Revive the Roots. "We thought it would be a nice thing to share with people." Trails on the property will be lit with markers, Martin said, and members of Revive the Roots will be there to serve as guides. Admission is free but there is a $5 suggested donation to Revive the Roots, which creates ecologically regenerative and dynamic social spaces through the education and practice of permaculture.
