ACT Speaker Talks Dragonflies in July!
SUGAR HILL – Bugs are bugs, right? Not when you’re looking at dragonflies! They are not only beautiful with a wide range of colors and markings but they’re taking a bite out of our biting insect population by chowing down on midges and mosquitoes along with pretty much anything else they can catch.
Come discover, or learn more about, the wide and wondrous world of dragonflies in our region at Sugar Hill’s Crapo Building on Friday, July 19 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. with the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) partnered with the Richardson Memorial Library.
Our special guest speaker will be Carl Martland, a founding member of ACT and an avid amateur naturalist. Carl will share his latest photographs of the dragonflies and damselflies found in our area, explain why they are important, and give tips on where to find them in your own backyard.
This presentation is updated from last year’s event and will have new and exciting reports of the latest species spotted. Part of ACT’s monthly speaker series this event is free and open to the public, although donations are welcome and gladly accepted. The program is geared toward adults and older children, but all are welcome. Save your spot by pre-registering at act-nh.org/education-events. Everyone who pre-registers is entered to win a cool door prize!
