Illinois Dragonflies and Damselflies

6/22/2022 6/22/2022
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Join us for this workshop about the dragonflies and damselflies of Illinois! We will be working in the field and in the lab as we discuss the identification, life history and behaviors of these fascinating invertebrates, both as aquatic nymphs and as adults. We will also discuss the interrelationship between the state-endangered Hine's emerald dragonfly, the devil's crayfish and local geology. Come dressed ready to walk in a creek and to take a 1.5-mile round-trip hike. Although targeted to educators of grades six through 10, educators of other grade levels are welcome to register for the workshop, but the information may need to be adapted as appropriate. You'll be provided with several resources to use with your students. Professional Development Hours are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
