Dragonfly and Damselfly Survey Orientation

Volunteer Event
Join our partner Johnson Creek Watershed Council to survey for dragonflies and damselflies in Brookside Wetlands and a Gresham Park! In years past this event has been held at Westmoreland Park, but this year they are expanding the areas included in the survey.
9:00 am 4:00 pm

Project details: Join our partner Johnson Creek Watershed Council to survey for dragonflies and damselflies in a Gresham Park and in Brookside Wetlands in Portland! In years past this event has been held at Westmoreland Park, but they are expanding the areas included in the survey. These surveys will allow for comparisons of areas in the watershed that provide supportive habitat, from Portland to Gresham, and provide information about how best to support healthy aquatic areas. Plus, it's fun to catch and look up-close at these beautiful creatures! Everyone welcome, and no experience necessary! Children welcome, and must be accompanied by an attentive adult if under the age of 16. 

Registered participants will receive a confirmation email with the exact meeting location. 

REGISTRATION WITH JCWC REQUIRED.
