Saturday, June 8, 10:00 am – 4:30 pm – Migratory Dragonfly Short Course


Dragonfly migration occurs on every continent except Antarctica. In North America, huge numbers of dragonflies can be seen flying south in fall along both coasts and through the Midwest, but these migrations are still poorly understood. The Migratory Dragonfly Partnership (MDP), Xerces Society, and U.S. Forest Service International Programs are pleased to announce an upcoming Migratory Dragonfly Short Course in White River Junction, Vermont,  at the Vermont Center for Ecostudies on Saturday, June 8, from 10 – 4:30. This FREE full day training will provide an overview of dragonfly life history, ecology, conservation, and migratory behavior, and train participants to identify key migratory species and contribute data to ongoing MDP citizen science research projects. Morning refreshments will be provided, but lunch is not included.  For more information contact Michele Blackburn at the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation at dragonfly@xerces.com.
