The annual YAAS dragonfly field trip will take place Saturday, June 10, at Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park. This site is in Ahwahnee on Hwy 49, just north of Wasuma School. Meet at the headquarters at 8:00 a.m. There will be a couple miles of easy walking, but we’ll be moving slowly as we search for damselflies along the edges of the path. Our ultimate destination will be the lake on the northeast side of the park. The park supports more than a dozen species of odonates (dragonflies and damselflies) and most of these will be easily visible at the lake. Some of the showy species such as Flame and Widow Skimmers like to perch in the open so bring your binoculars and camera if you’d like to try your hand at photography. If you have a net bring it as well and we’ll see if we can catch some odes for close viewing. Also bring a hat, sunscreen, water, and snacks. For those who are keen we’ll try to visit an additional nearby site after Ahwahnee Hills to see if we can find a few more species to the day list. We’ll be done by noon so there is no need to bring lunch.

If you have questions or require additional information feel free to contact Matthew Matthiessen at matthima@gmail.com. Also please confirm with Matthew if you are planning to attend, but if you decide at join at the last minute just meet us there. Everyone is welcome. The more the merrier.
