Daring Dragonflies

What can dragonflies and other macro invertebrates tell us about water quality? Find out and make a dragonfly from natural materials. Explore the park and look for dragonflies, ducks, turtles, and more. Watch out for poison ivy, ticks, and mosquitoes and maintain 6 ft. of space with your group and others.

Meet at York Pond, River Drive near Irving Avenue, Providence, RI 02906.

Masks, distancing and registration strongly recommended.
This event is part of our monthly “Art & Science in the Park” series with 15 Minute Field Trips, focusing on community action to protect wildlife, promote biodiversity, and combat climate change.  Learn about local flora and fauna through art and science activities.  Great for families or to use in the classroom.  Stay longer to enjoy the park, pick up litter, or use your new knowledge to educate others.
