Dragonflies and Damselfies, A Wild and Scenic Rivers Presentation :: Sunday, July 9, 2017 :: 10 am to 12:30 pm

What do dragonflies tell us about water quality? And why are there so many of them on the Wood River? Discover the amazing beauty and abilities of dragonflies, and their close cousins - damselflies, during this presentation by Odonata expert, Ginger Brown. Using slides and specimens Ginger will discuss the life history and interesting facts about the dragonflies and damselflies who inhabit the rivers in the Wood-Pawcatuck Wild and Scenic Rivers Study.

After the hour long presentation we will take kayaks onto the Wood River to see the flying wonders in action. This will be a very easy paddle and we will not need to go far to find many of the winged creatures. Expect to spend about an hour or so on the water.
