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 embracing the heat of summer by 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.
