Odonata Central Training

Odonata Central is a national program designed to expand the understanding of the distribution, biogeography, biodiversity, and identification of Odonata—dragonflies and damselflies—in the Western Hemisphere. Participants will first attend a training session at the center to discuss the biology of odonates and how to collect requested data. With monitoring supplies from RTPEC, volunteers will choose a location to monitor, photographing and identifying dragonflies and damselflies that they encounter.
