This calendar usually includes Dragonfly Teacher Workshops, Minnesota Dragonfly Society Events, Classroom Teaching Days, and Conferences. However since 2015, I’ve been spending my summers doing dragonfly field work for my graduate program and am not currently offering any open workshops. If you would let to set up a private workshop for your school, nature center, or conference please send me an email!
If you need a dragonfly fix this summer, go to one (or more!) of the Minnesota Dragonfly Society’s many great events. I’ll be at most of them, come find me and say “Hi!”
