Event Details

Dragonflies help humans by controlling populations of pest insects, especially those that bug us most, such as mosquitoes and biting flies. A single dragonfly can eat anywhere from 30 to hundreds of mosquitoes per day! 

What kinds of dragonflies live here?

Presented by Dave Small, President and Acting Director of the Athol Bird and Nature Club.

For over twenty-eight years, Dave has been the charismatic leader of the Club. His skills as a naturalist, trip leader, and presenter are in demand throughout New England. Through Dave’s efforts, the Center is recognized as the place to hold meetings that relate to natural history and the environment.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services - Dig-In Grant.
