Event Details

What odonates (dragonflies and damselflies) inhabit Washington, and what does their presence or absence mean for local and regional conservation? Steep Rock Association (SRA) aims to answer these questions and we need your help. Join our team of “dragon hunters” for an educational and scientific day of sampling odonates in SRA preserves. We’ll start by overviewing odonate ecology, transition into capture technique training, and then begin the hunt for as many different species of dragonflies and damselflies at a given survey site.

Location: Macricostas Preserve, 124 Christian St., New Preston. Forecasted inclement weather will advance the survey to Saturday, July 20.
