Dragonflies are fascinating and colorful insects with bizarre behavior. An educational program on dragonflies will be offered in Reston on July 26 and 28, 2018. The program consists of a class on the biology, conservation, and identification of local dragonflies followed by an opportunity to observe dragonflies in the field. The class will be taught on Thursday, 26 July 2018 by Ken Rosenthal, Park Naturalist, Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation, Gulf Branch Nature Center, and Don Coram, Fairfax Master Naturalist, Class of Fall 2016. The field observations will be held on Saturday, 28 July 2018, going out from the Walker Nature Center. A dozen or more different dragonflies may be observed. The class and field observation are free if you do both; the class is $5.00 if you just take the class.
