Learn about the diversity and ecology of dragonflies and damselflies at 4 or 5 stops that contain summer water (perennial creek, seep in grassland, seep in woodland, deep pool in a seasonal creek, and a seep in chaparral). We hope to get close-up (in hand) views of these exquisite creatures with Sandra Hunt-von Arb, dragonfly enthusiast and senior biologist with Pacific Northwestern Biological.
