Dragonfly Survey

Friday, August 17, 2018

What dragonflies live at Cedar Creek? Learn about dragonfly natural history, phenology, and how to catch and identify adult dragonflies with scientists and volunteers from the Minnestoa Dragonfly Society. Like birds, dragonflies inhabit a variety of habitats and appear at different times of year; Cedar Creek in late summer is a great place to see a variety of species. We'll start indoors at the Lindeman Center at 10:30am with a short presentation from scientist Ami Thompson, then migrate out to Fish Lake to run around outside catching dragonflies and practicing identification. If you arrive after 11am, please go straight to Fish Lake - Ami says stragglers are always welcome! (free, families welcome)
