Over 300 million years ago, dragonflies with 2-1/2-foot wingspans ruled the air. Today their descendants number more than 100 species in Illinois alone, providing a visual feast for nature lovers from May to October. McHenry County College’s Marla Garrison – author of Damselflies of Chicagoland – will take us on an image-intensive journey into the fascinating world of local dragonflies and damselflies including their anatomy, life history, behaviors and diversity.
