Instructor: Celeste Searles Mazzacano
Date: Rescheduled for Sunday, August 6
Location: SFI and local areas

From flight dynamics and courtship to structural coloration and anatomy, the study of Odonates is full of fascinating facts. This is a beginner’s guide to the dragonflies and damselflies that inhabit Siskiyou ponds and lakes, their larval stages underwater, nymphal emergence, food sources, habitats, species and gender identification. We’ll visit local low and high-elevation lakes and creeks with our nets in pursuit of learning more about these magical insects and their behaviors. Species we’ll likely see include Emerald, Skimmer, Meadowhawk and Saddlebags dragonflies and Forktail and Dancer damselflies.
