Dragonfly Surveyors

Welcome! This page is created for current Dragonfly and Damselfly Surveyors. If you are not registered to survey, but still curious about dragonflies in the Johnson Creek Watershed check out our Dragonfly Science page HERE!

As Summer 2021 approaches, we are excited to move into our season of volunteer dragonfly surveys. Surveyors have learned local dragonfly and damselfly identification techniques and will be completing once-a-month surveys from June to September.
