Dragonflies of Northern Virginia


Kevin Munroe (former ASNV staffer and board member, and currently Park Manager at Huntley Meadows Park) led a Dragonfly Safari at Lake Fairfax Park, which was followed by a presentation at NWF. Although the cold snap reduced the number of dragonfly species present, the group identified 2 species during the walk. Kevin then gave a slideshow tour of the area’s dragonflies and their fascinating ecology. He spoke about hunting adaptations and habitat preferences, tips on the area’s best dragonfly hotspots and parks, how to create your own backyard dragonfly pool, and a look at Kevin’s new website,
