Dragonfly Hunting at Wiregrass Lake

Dashers, dancers, clubtails, and bluets! What better place to stalk odonates than the spot that has more recorded species of dragonflies and damselflies than any other Toledo Metropark? Join Kim Smith for a morning of looking up, down and all around Wiregrass Lake. We’ll see photogenic crowd-pleasers like the Calico Pennant as well as the needle-sized Bluets that hide in the grass.

During the pandemic, participation in TNA field trips is by reservation only, and group size is limited. You must contact Jim Witter to reserve your spot on a trip. (JWitter@wcparks.org)

Bring your binoculars and camera for the leisurely half-mile walk around the lake.
