CITIZEN SCIENCE: Dragons and Damsels

June 29 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 8 AND UP

Citizen Science programs at Ijams take ordinary people and turn them into field biologists netting, spotting, and collecting all manner of specimens. This month we are netting and identifying Dragonflies and Damselflies, collectively called odonates. After a brief indoor session on how to catch and identify odonates, we will head out to the trails to collect them from the water and the air.

All of the species we see will be uploaded to Odonata Central at the end to help this Citizen Science project.

LOCATION 

This Program meets at the Ijams Visitor Center in the Multipurpose Room.

REGISTRATION 

This program costs $8 per person. EVERYONE MUST HAVE A TICKET. Registration ends on Thursday, June 27 at 5:00 p.m. REGISTER HERE.
