Description:

In this outdoor activity/field trip, learners conduct experiments to explore where dragonflies and damselflies perch or rest, and how the flies change behavior in reaction to other flies or fly decoys. This activity must be done at a site such as a stream or lake where these flies gather, and offers a wonderful opportunity to see insects in nature up close and discover more about their non-flying time.
