The Dragonfly Society of America recently held its annual meeting in Minnesota, including a pre-meeting field trip to areas near the St. Croix River on July 10, hosted by the Minnesota Dragonfly Society.
St. Croix 360 is pleased to present a short video made during the field trip.
All three places are significant to Ron Lawrenz, the president of the Minnesota Dragonfly Society. Ron was the founding director of the St. Croix Watershed Research Station (which now includes Pine Needles, used for artist residencies), and is currently the director of Warner Nature Center.
It was a bit of a cool and cloudy day — not ideal for dragonflies, who usually fly when the sun is out. But a few interesting creatures were found, and visitors saw the unique habitat offered along the St. Croix River.
And, nevertheless, “Just the fact that we’re out looking is good enough.”
