Dragonfly migration is one of the most fascinating events in the insect world, but also one of the least-known. To shed light on this understudied phenomenon, the Migratory Dragonfly Partnership (MDP) is hosting dragonfly migration short courses across North America. The objective of these one-day events is to train participants to identify key migratory species and contribute data to ongoing MDP citizen science projects.
One of these courses will be held at Sterling, New York, on April 25, 2014, from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. The only other one I know of this year will be in Vermont. Sterling is about two-and-a-half hours’ drive from Buffalo, along the southern shore of Lake Ontario.I’m already booked for this event so if anyone from WNY would like to come with me and — like me — learn a lot more about dragonflies, please e-mail me as soon as you can, on:

Places on the course are limited and it will undoubtedly be popular.
