Dragonflies and Damselflies workshop at Edmonds Demo Garden Aug. 17

“Flying Gems: Dragonflies and Damselflies in the Environment” is the topic of a workshop presented by Dr. David Richman at the Edmonds Wildlife Habitat Native Plant Demonstration Garden Saturday, Aug. 17 from 3-5 p.m.

Dragonflies and the closely-related Damselflies are very ancient. Fossils from the Jurassic are practically indistinguishable from modern species and so they were contemporaries of dinosaurs. The purpose of this workshop is to acquaint you with the common species found in our area and their lives and behavior. Everyone is welcome to attend this free workshop to learn about our Northwest Dragonflies and Damselflies and how to enjoy watching them.

The workshop will be at the Demo Garden, Willow Creek Hatchery, 95 Pine St., Edmonds.

Parking is located on the northwest corner of Pine Street and Edmonds Way (S.R.#104). There is free parking on Pine Street. For those with limited mobility, there is parking in the Hatchery Parking area down the driveway on the right side of Pine.
