Dragonflies spend a majority of their life as aquatic larva living in lakes, rivers, ponds, streams and other wetlands. Different
species have unique needs when it comes to water conditions, aquatic environment, and purity. This makes dragonflies a great indicator species when it
comes to water quality. The Minnesota Dragonfly Society invites you to join citizen scientists from around the state to help us study
these fascinating creatures and the environment in which they live. Let's explore Minnesota's diverse wetlands together and share our
knowledge with everyone, from novice dragon hunters to seasoned entomologist.
