Dragons and Damsels of NH

August 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm EDT

Red Barn Series, Newfound Audubon
No registration necessary – just come and join us!

Speaker: Dr. Pam Hunt, NH Audubon

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? This program provides 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. It also highlights a few of NH’s notable species and their stories, and closes with some results from the “NH Dragonfly Survey,” a five year volunteer-based project that documented the distribution of these insects across the state.

Please park across the street at Ash Cottage. Download a map here. Note that this is now a private residence and there is no bathroom access.

Special thanks to our 2022 Red Barn Series sponsor, the Hebron Conservation Commission; and to our co-host, the Newfound Lake Region Association.
