Dragonfly Citizen Science Projects

Starting in 2014, I'm participating in two projects involving dragonflies, but they're both connected since they share their databases.

Odonata Central

In this project, I submit photos of any dragonflies I find in my yard.

Dragonfly Migration Project

This project focuses on tracking dragonfly migration, and they're especially interested in a few target species. I report my sightings of these species if I wasn't able to snap a photo.
