Dragonflies are among the most fascinating and beautiful insects on earth. We’ll learn to identify the different species in the hand as well as on the wing, and will observe and discuss their behavior as they perform aerial acrobatics and interact with each other. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them. This walk is for ages 15 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. High fire danger cancels: Call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled.
