Dragonfly Study

Follow amateur odonatist Steve Valley as he studies and catalogs the amazing variety of dragonflies and damselflies in Oregon. Scientific knowledge of this colorful and fascinating insect species is limited and Steve and other volunteers are working to learn more about the dragonfly’s lifecycle from nymph to adult, their mating habits and how habitat destruction and harvesting for fish bait is affecting their populations.
