Dragonfly Walk tomorrow at Blackacre State Nature Preserve
By Leslie Isaman
Frankfort, KY (July 6, 2012) - Blackacre State Nature Preserve (SNP), and Historic Homestead in Jefferson County at 3200 Tucker Station Road, Louisville, KY will play host to a unique event on Sunday, July 8, beginning at 2pmET/1pmCT.
Visit the ponds and small streams at Blackacre SNP in Jefferson County as trip leader, Ellis Laudermilk, invertebrate biologist for the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission (KSNPC), takes participants in search of dragonflies and damselflies.
These beneficial, colorful, and acrobatic insects are the kings of the air in the insect world and their beauty rivals many butterflies. During the field trip we'll discuss Kentucky's diversity of dragonflies and damselflies, the differences between them, and the ecology and behavior of the group.
The walk is rated as easy to moderate and would be a great opportunity to introduce children to these fascinating insects. Please meet by the Schick Nature Center prior to 2pmET/1pmCT. If possible, bring a pair of close-focusing binoculars.
The event is being coordinated by the Blackacre Conservancy. Admission is $3 for individuals, $5 per family. The hike is limited to 20 people and may fill up quickly, so reserve your spot now.
For reservations, call or email the Blackacre Conservancy at 502-266-9802 or email@example.com.
