Be a Community Scientist by participating in our yearly Dragonfly Survey!

From Dragons to Damsels, these insects are a welcome sight in our summer landscape. Dragonflies are incredibly beneficial insects to have around us, as they feed on a number of insects including flies that can otherwise become pests in our backyards and gardens. Join Audubon naturalist Ryan MacLean for a special presentation about the lives of both the Dragonflies and Damselflies that inhabit our wetlands. Then we will venture outside to conduct a Dragonfly Survey in the meadows and around Georgie’s Pond at Greenwich Audubon Center. This will be an exciting way to experience nature and also contribute to Community Science data on dragonfly populations. Once we have begun counting you can stay as long as you'd like!

This IN-PERSON program has a limited capacity and will start with an indoor slide show. 

Tickets MUST be purchased in advance through this online ticket sales page. There will be no ticket sales at the door the day of the program.
