August CreekSpeak: Local Dragonflies of the Putah Creek Drainage
Join Putah Creek Council's fourth CreekSpeak talk of 2017 on August 17, 2017.
CreekSpeak is Putah Creek Council's six-month series of community talks about the nature, culture, and history of our region.
Have you seen a dragonfly along the creek? Do you know how they spend their lives? Join us at the August CreekSpeak to learn about the natural history of our local dragonflies and observe their life cycle, learn observation tips, and discover more about these creatures that share this space.
Greg Kareofelas is a self-taught naturalist who has spent many years in the field studying dragonflies. He is an associate with the UC Davis Bohart Museum of Entomology and presents on dragonflies to local clubs and interested parties. Bring your dragonfly identification questions for him to ponder!
CreekSpeak talks are free to Putah Creek Council members and open to the public. A $5 donation is requested from those who have not yet joined the Council.
The talks alternate between Davis and Winters on the third Thursday of the month. Additional talks in 2017 will include:
- The Cache Creek Tending & Gathering Garden, with Cache Creek Conservancy (September 21, Winters)
- Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation on Serpentine Soils, with Susan Harrison (October 19, Davis)
