Methow Conservancy Field Trip: Dragonflies, Damselflies and other Winged Beauties of the Methow Valley with Dennis Paulson
Join Dennis Paulson, one of the most knowledgeable naturalists in the Northwest, to learn about the "bird watchers’ insects," - dragonflies and damselflies – plus other critters and plants we come across. With nets and cameras at the ready, we’ll search lakes, ponds and wildflower meadows to learn about the creatures of the Odonata order, meaning “toothed jaw”. Regardless of what we find, a day in the field with Dennis Paulson is an amazing treat for anyone wanting to learn more about the natural world. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from and explore with one of the most experienced and knowledgeable biologists in the Northwest!

He received his doctorate degree at the University of Miami in 1966, and over the last many decades has pursued research on birds and dragonflies and taught university and adult classes about birds, dragonflies, ecology and evolution. He is the author of over 70 scientific papers and a half-dozen books, including Shorebirds of the Pacific Northwest, Dragonflies of Washington, Shorebirds of North America: The Photographic Guide and Alaska: The Ecotraveler's Wildlife Guide.
