Are you looking for a unique outdoor experience that's educational as well as fun for the whole family?

Then you should check out a WDS event. The Wisconsin Dragonfly Society partners in a variety of events throughout the year. Most of our events are held outside. They are typically open to the public for free or for a minimal charge. Many of our events include hands on activities such as holding nymphs as you examine them under a hand lens or chasing dragonflies with nets. Participating in a WDS event helps us further understand dragonflies and our environment and can leave you with memories of the fun that you shared with your family and friends!

Having an event?

Consider asking the Wisconsin Dragonfly Society to partner or participate. The WDS can put together a program that best suits your event. Whether it’s an information booth with live dragonfly nymphs, classroom presentation followed by netting live adult dragonflies or a complete workshop with preserved and live specimens, WDS can provide knowledgeable volunteers, helpful literature, and the use of the field supplies that will be needed, including nets, hand lenses and field guides.
