2019 Dragonflies Workshop
Instructor: Jim Johnson Dates: Saturday-Sunday, June 29-30, 2019 Location: Meet at SFI, Selma, OR Tuition: $120
From flight dynamics and courtship to structural coloration and anatomy, the order of Odonata is full of fascinating facts. This field course will combine a beginning guide to the dragonflies and darners that inhabit Siskiyou ponds and lakes, their larval stages underwater, nymphal emergence, food sources, habitats, species and gender identification, then build on it with an intermediate day exploring further identification and species behaviors in the field. We’ll visit both low- and high-elevation sites with nets in hand. Species we’ll likely see include Emerald, Skimmer, Meadowhawk and Saddlebags dragonflies and Forktail and Dancer damselflies.
