Join what is becoming an annual search for dragonflies and damselflies in Barrington on Saturday morning, July 14, with an expert on the subjects.
The Barrington Land Conservation Trust is hosting the event at Echo Lake. You are invited to join Ginger Brown, the author of two books on the insects.
The search is described as an exploration for “dashers, skimmers and dancers,” according to Beth Rondeau of the land trust. It starts at 10:30 am.
Brown wrote “Dragonflies and Damselflies of Cape Cod” and is writing “Dragonflies and Damselflies of Rhode Island.”
Meet at the land trust’s Sowams Woods sign on South Lake Drive. Park along Lighthouse Lane just across Washington Road. There is no parking on South Lake Drive.
Rondeau recommends that you wear boots or water shoes to do the search.
