Operation Firefly relies on its "Team Firefly" volunteers to accomplish our goals. We have distributed lights and information to more than 9,000 people since the program’s inception in 2012 and we set an increasingly higher goal each year. For the winter of 2017-2018, we're aiming to serve 3,500 people county wide and we need your help. We'll be conducting Operation Firefly light distributions all over LA County following the time change in November and ending the first week of March. Each distribution event is typically Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evenings, 4:30 - 7 pm.
Join Team Firefly today and we'll send you regular updates with dates and locations as the calendar progresses. There's no pressure and you need only respond to dates and locations that work for you. Each season we usually have around 150 volunteers total, many of whom do 1 or 2 events and some who do multiple events.
Overall, we always need more volunteers and many hands truly do make light work. We need bilingual English/Spanish speaking volunteers for recipients who speak Spanish and we also need female volunteers to encourage female riders to stop. Of course, Operation Firefly distributions are a lot of fun and everyone goes home with a big smile on their face. Sign up for Team Firefly today and please invite a few of your friends. Thanks.-Colin Bogart, Education DirectorPlease RSVP on the links below to volunteer for any of these Operation Firefly Events:
John Montgomery signed Beverly Hills Greenway 2015-01-06 10:09:36 -0800This is a critical step in making Los Angeles a safer biking community. Having recently moved from Chicago, I’ve seen that if a city builds the infrastructure, cyclists will use it — even in freezing temperatures. So in a city with a climate like LA, it should make an even bigger impact.
"62-feet for a World-Class Street"
A world-class Santa Monica Boulevard is possible in Beverly Hills. The boulevard's future has been the subject of much angst, but Beverly Hills can have it all:
- A complete street for people driving, taking transit, walking AND biking;
- A beautiful boulevard with the very best in street design;
- A safe roadway of uniform width; and
- A green boulevard that maintains the same amount of green space.
A coalition of Beverly Hills residents, business owners and other stakeholders is supporting the "Beverly Hills Greenway"--a compromise design that achieves all of the project's objectives without the controversial impacts. Will you join us?

I support a green vision for Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills that both respects Beverly Gardens Park and provides sustainable transportation choices. The Beverly Hills Greenway would maintain the current amount of green space, add bike lanes and keep traffic moving safely--all in a uniform 62-foot roadway.
62 feet for a world-class street!
