A Community Science Opportunity

Steep Rock Association (SRA) seeks community scientists to participate as member of its “Ode Corps” – a group dedicated to collecting dragonflies and damselflies inhabiting SRA’s nature preserves as part of a multiyear, comprehensive inventory effort.

Join us for a May training session led by Connecticut Odonata Expert Valinn Ranelli and SRA’s Conservation Science Manager Rory Larson. Project protocol, sampling techniques, equipment use, species behavior, and data collection will be covered in the habitats of Macricostas Preserve. Following the training, individuals will be supplied with equipment and asked to conduct surveys on an ongoing basis throughout the field season (May-October).
