Animal Feature of the Week: Damselflies
by Emily Overstrom, Naturalist
We are heading to Phillips Pond with Naturalist Emily to look for the dazzling damselflies and to learn about their life cycles! While you are hiking this summer keep an eye out for these fast moving insects. Share your damselfly sightings with us by sending photos to email@example.com.
Have you ever seen a baby dragon fly or crane fly? Surprisingly, many insects spend the first part of their life in the water and are often unrecognizable from their adult stages. Join environmental education intern Meghan as she shows a variety of larva you can find in the stream at Baltimore Woods!
Playing outside is GREAT fun and at Baltimore Woods Nature Center its what we do best! Nature play helps children build self-confidence, develop an understanding of their own emotions, use their imaginations, and create an appreciation and sense of caring for the animals and plants they discover along the way . If you don’t believe us, just listen to these campers and they’ll tell you what they love about being outside!
