FREE event! Join us on Saturday 1st of June at the beautiful Stover Country Park in Devon to celebrate all things dragonfly! This site is a fantastic place to see dragonflies, 22 different species have been recorded here so far – so we have officially designated it as a Dragonfly Hotspot! Join our team to officially launch the site by taking part in guided walks, pond dipping and craft activities throughout the day! Our very own Dragonfly Champion and author Dave Smallshire will be on hand all day to share his vast knowledge about these awesome insects too.

Everyone is welcome, all age groups all interest levels. We will be on hand all day to answer your dragonfly questions and to help you to get to know and love these amazing insects 🙂
