Ecology graduate researcher Kelly Ridenhour drives all over the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Georgia at dusk in search of the eastern firefly known as the “Big Dipper.” In this video she’s outfitted with Continental CrossContact™ LX25 tires as she crosses country roads, highways, and city streets.
