Dragons and Damsels of New Hampshire

Welcome to the fascinating world of the insect order Odonata! You may be familiar with the dragonflies buzzing over your yard in the summer, or the damselflies that land on your kayak, but what do you REALLY know about these ancient insects? Speaker Dr. Pamela Hunt, Avian Conservation Biologist with NH Audubon, will provide an overview of the biology and ecology of dragonflies and damselflies, from their amazing life cycle (content alert: some pretty crazy reproductive behavior is involved!) to their incredible diversity. She will reveal highlights a few of NH's notable species and their stories, and provide some results from the “NH Dragonfly Survey,” a five year volunteer-based project to document the distribution of these insects across the state.
