Explorer Day Highlight #4 - Going on a dragon hunt!

Did you know Dragonflies are expert fliers? They can fly straight up and down, hover like a helicopter, and even mate mid-air!

Victoria YNC members learned this and more last August on an Explorer Day with nature mentors Claudia and Darren Copley. Claudia and Darren are knowledgeable naturalists and arthropod experts from the Victoria Natural History Society and the Royal B.C. Museum

During their outdoor adventure, young naturalists learned about dragonfly biology, hunted for dragonflies and aquatic larvae by nearby ponds with nets... and even got to see some up close.
