Jerry Lang and Dave Dister led a Dragonfly/Damselfly field trip Saturday afternoon (July 28). Details and photos from the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve portion are posted on our Recent Sightings page.
Charlie DeWitt and Jerry later emailed information which included two other locations: Lost Lake and Black Lake.
Jerry suggested that this list by Charlie of all species recorded on the trip was the more complete:
