Latest update on British Dragonfly Society events:

In the current unusual circumstances, we are keeping in touch with volunteers and supporters through virtual events, such as our online meetings, via social media, email, phone and post. We plan to resume face-to-face activities as soon as it is safe and sensible to do so.

Events, including online events, will be advertised here on this page, in our free monthly e-newsletter and via social media. Please check this page regularly for updates.

Dragonfly enthusiasts and supporters – please check the national COVID-19 government guidance here and your local travel guidance before undertaking any dragonfly work, recording or surveys this summer. While we would love you to input any dragonfly records that you generate, you should not feel under any obligation to carry out surveys and should only do so if you have assessed that the activity is safe and is permitted by any restrictions in place at the time.


All best wishes from the whole team at the British Dragonfly Society.





This is a diary of upcoming dragonfly-related events, courses, and field trips. You will also find volunteering opportunities at our Dragonfly Hotspot sites listed here.

If you would like us to help advertise a relevant event please contact our Conservation Officer.
