You all know I can’t resist dragonflies and damselflies, right? Imagine my dismay when Arthur Liles posted on our Facebook page about a dragonfly lecture he was going to in Mississippi–Vicksburg? I think so. In any case, I couldn’t go. Bummer.

So what’s even better? Getting the speaker to come here!

Our 1st Quarter meeting is actually scheduled the first Sunday of the 2nd Quarter, specifically April 7. We will convene at the Visitor Center at Black Bayou Lake NWR at 2 p.m. to walk the trails and boardwalk looking for Odonates. Of course, we will be distracted by all the other wonderful biota of BBLNWR!

Dr. Doug Clarke will join us there. After about an hour of trail-walking, we will reconvene in the Visitor Center, say about 3:15 p.m., no later than 3:30, for Dr. Clarke’s presentation and Q&A.

At 4:30, we will have our usual 30- to 40-minute business meeting. Remember that all are welcome to our quarterly meetings, including kids and grandkids old enough to enjoy the experience. Non-members are free to leave when we convene for business, or stay and observe if they are curious about us.
