With many sites around the state collecting data on dragonflies, we are amassing quite a large set of data! Students are learning so much about dragonflies, and having fun while doing it. Here are a few of the scientific posters students have created so far, as well as some of the highlights from field studies.
After all the data comes in from our citizen scientists from mountains to the sea, we will combine all the data sets for analyzing. We will try to answer the big question all of our citizen scientists have been helping us with for 3 years now: What are the best and worst weather conditions for dragonfly flight? Be sure to come by BugFest at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh on Saturday September 16th to meet some of our Dragonfly Detective citizen scientists in person, look at the posters they created and find out more about the mysteries of dragonflies!
