Docent Naturalists Karen DeMello and Jan Hintermeister will introduce you to the fascinating world of dragonflies on this short, leisurely-paced hike around Horseshoe Lake. On the first part of the walk, you’ll learn the basics of dragonfly biology and behavior; on the second half you’ll observe and try to identify these interesting insects near the lake. Bring binoculars if you have them.
