Damsels, dragons and darners, oh my! Learn all about damselflies, dragonflies and darners on this guided hike as you “hunt” for them in their native habitat.
Damselflies, dragonflies and darners are key species in our natural area, helping control harmful insects like mosquitoes. Take your children on a guided hike through the woods as you search for these fascinating insects, learn about the vast differences between them, and observe some specimens up close! All ages are welcome to attend this family event, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Organized groups must schedule a separate tour for their group.
The program will take place on Saturday, June 13, from 9:30-11 a.m. at Burnidge Forest Preserve, located at 14N273 Coombs Road, Elgin.
