Dragonflies of the Siskiyou Summit

REGISTRATION will open on May 22 at 6am.

The group will walk to a series of sag ponds, ponds created from natural slumps, and catch, identify and then release dragonflies. These ponds also support a robust population of western pond turtles. This outing will be led by amazing naturalists who are also talented birders and photographers.
