Mapleton Park Rotary Lodge

Presenter: Denis Doucet

Did you know that
  • New Brunswick has over 140 species of dragonflies and damselflies, which is more than is found in all of Europe!
  • A species of dragonfly that occurs in New Brunswick and is widespread globally actually has the longest migration of any insect, even further than the Monarch butterfly.
  • The order Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) is one of the oldest groups of insects found on the planet. They have been around for more than 300 million years!

Come learn more about this fascinating and very important group of insects in a rich presentation using imagery, notes, quotes, and anecdotes. Denis Doucet, a naturalist and long-time Odonata enthusiast, will undoubtedly grant us with an engaging, visually stunning, and thought-provoking talk.

This will be an in-person presentation at the Rotary Lodge with a Zoom link for those who want to join in from home.

All are welcome, Nature Moncton member or not.
