Dragonflies: Aerial Acrobats
Dragonflies have been around for 300 million years, with several extinct species having wingspans of over two feet! Inhabiting sites around lakes, ponds, streams, and wetlands, they are excellent predators, eating mosquitoes and other small insects. Dr. Hal White, author of Natural History of Delmarva Dragonflies and Damselflies, presents a detailed examination of the habitats that support dragonflies, as well as their life cycle, foraging behaviors, and reproductive strategies. Tour our ponds and see how these aerial acrobats fit into our ecosystems and how you can create a place in your garden for them. Copies of Dr. White’s book will be for available for purchase and signing after class. Rain date for this class is Friday, June 29, 2018.
