The Williams Lake Field Naturalists will present a free public talk on dragonflies.

Dragonflies fascinate us with their acrobatic flight and improbable beauty.

Attending the nature centre will allow you to hear a B.C. insect specialist discuss their life cycle and how the changes in our world are affecting them.

Gordon Hutchings, BSc., documents how species are appearing in new ranges in out-of-the-way places in western Canada.

He will focus on dragonflies of the boreal forest with emphasis on B.C. and the Yukon.

Bring your questions about these familiar, yet mysterious creatures.

The presentation starts at 7:30 p.m.

Hutchings’ book Dragonflies and Damselflies in the Hand will also be available for purchase.
