Dragonflies and Damselflies of N.J.

June 4, 2017, 2:00 - 4:00 PM

Notice how dragonflies often visit water, whether ponds, lakes or rivers, even bird baths in the summer? Ever-fascinating, they are voracious predators as larvae, in freshwater habitats, and as adults, where they consume flies and other insects. Here in NJ we have an abundance of dragonfly and damselfly species, and Dr. Jessica Ware, a professor of evolutionary biology at Rutgers Newark, will lead us on a journey to learn about their amazing life histories and where to find them across the Garden State. Dr. Ware is the past president for the Systematics section of the Entomological Society of America and the current secretary for the World Dragonfly Association.
