Dragonflies and Damselflies | Kids Out and About Austin

Dragonflies and Damselflies

Dragonflies love hot summer days! You will learn what to look for, how to tell dragonflies from damselflies, how to recognize habitat preferences, and how to capture and identify using a field guide. We will walk around the various Arboretum ponds with different habitats and will capture, identify, and release these winged jewels. Children are welcome for this class, as they are the very best dragonfly catchers!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.
