DRAGONFLY & DAMSELFLY ID HIKE WITH BRENDA VAN RYSWYK
Brenda will start the day by giving a short introduction to dragonflies and damselflies while giving you some handouts about them. We then explore Valens Conservation Area and watch Brenda demonstrate the basics of catching odonata. She will identify each one and show you their particular characteristics. Be prepared to be outdoors from 10:00 till noon. Afterwards if you are keen, Brenda will be around to wander and examine caught species. All are welcome to stay. Dress appropriately, including hat and sunscreen. Hiking boots are recommended. Bring lots of water, lunch and snacks. Also if you have them, binoculars, insect net, hand lens and field guides.
