A great opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of dragonflies and damselflies! Starting in the classroom we will take a journey through their highly successful life cycle illustrated with a host of Shropshire species. Following lunch the afternoon will be spent around the centre ponds and River Onny observing some of the different life stages and
witnessing behaviour such as holding territory, mating and egg laying.
Please bring wellies/walking books and waterproofs. If you have identification guides and hand lens bring those along too. Lunch can be purchased from the café or bring a packed lunch with you.
