Dragonflies and damselflies represent a most ancient order of insects, the Odonata. Fierce predators and elegant fliers, the odonata are fascinating and beautiful. Attend this morning session to learn about these magnificent organisms, and perhaps prepare to start monitoring them, yourself. To present the training, esteemed local naturalist and citizen scientist Barbara Williams will team up with Lalainya Goldsberry, who is now coordinating the Illinois Odonata Survey through the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago.
Training will be held at Forest Preserve Headquarters.
