This workshop based at Chester Zoo Nature Reserve will cover the identification of adult dragonflies and damselflies in the field. We will also do some pond dipping to look for larvae. The workshop will involve some light walking as we look at different ponds on the site.

There is an optional free extra – Dragonflies & Damselflies Spotlight Session in collaboration with RECORD LERC at Chester Zoo on Wednesday 12th June 6:30 – 8:30pm – where you can get in some extra identification practise before heading out onto the reserve – more info and booking here. Please note that it is not essential to attend the spotlight session.
