DRAGONFLIES of FLORIDA

From Calendar: ACT Events & Activities

Location: Prairie Creek Lodge

From: May 26, 2018 at 9:00am to: 12:00pm

Details:

WHAT
Dragonflies and Damselflies are fascinating and conspicuous components of our insect fauna. There are 169 species recorded from Florida and 116 species have been found in Alachua County.

The talk will cover basic biological facts about the group, including anatomy, life cycle, reproduction, behavior, habitats, and feeding. The non-technical discussion will be illustrated with photographs of many local species.

We will also walk around the fields and wetlands of the preserve and try to find these fast-flyers.

Dr. Franklin “Buck” Snelson is leading this talk/walk, and he is a research associate at the Florida Museum of Natural History.

WHAT TO BRING
Be sure to wear hiking shoes (boots preferred- never know how wet parts of the trail might be) and long pants. If you have binoculars, please bring them too. Never hurts to bring water and snacks.
