Did you know dragonflies and damselflies live most of their lives underwater? How do you tell the difference between a dragonfly and a damselfly? Can dragonflies fly backwards? Come learn about these fascinating and efficient predators!
This program begins in the museum's auditorium with an investigation of native dragonfly and damselfly specimens, a story, and a dragonfly craft. We then go on a short guided hike around Trailside's pond to look for dragonflies and damselflies, and investigate the dragonfly and damselfly larvae that live in the pond.
Please wear sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Be prepared for a short walk outside.
