This year we’ll shift to northern California and focus on the southern Siskiyous’ gorgeous dragonflies. Species we’ll likely see include the Petaltail, Clubtails, Cruiser and Emerald and Skimmer dragonflies and the Spreadwing, Broad-winged and Pond damselflies. Our home base will be the serene Flowing Waters Retreat Center, which has its own mountain stream. On the first morning, we’ll concentrate on dragonflies’ unique biology, life cycles and identification, then spend the afternoon at a nearby lake. Day 2 will focus on more unusual mountain species. A field trip to high mountain lakes and a creek will follow a short morning indoor session. In the field we’ll practice species identifications and behavior interpretations.
Treat yourself to a full-fledged naturalist retreat by lodging in Namasté House boasting three bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, deck overlooking Parks Creek and a refreshing swimming hole. The house sleeps 13, including two double beds for couples. Very limited campsites are also available. A two-night minimum stay is required in order to lodge here.
