SoFo: Dragonfly/Damselfly Walk and Identification: Adults/Children 8+
Walk Leader: Annette DeGiovine Oliveira.
Annette has been surveying dragonflies and damselflies since 2005 and was trained for the “New York Dragonfly and Damselfly Survey,” a project of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and the NY Natural Heritage Program. On this walk to a local pond, she will cover the basics of Odonate life cycle, habitat, and identification, while instructing you on observation skills and the proper technique of netting, for studying, then releasing, these amazing flying insects. Wear clothing and footwear you don’t mind getting wet.
