General Meetings

September 20th, 7 p.m. — Dragonflies and Damselflies

Tim Manolis will talk on Dragonflies and Damselflies of a transect through the Central Sierra Nevada, including the foothills. I will present a basic introduction to dragonfly biology and distribution, focused on species that can be found from the foothills, up into the Sierra Nevada, and down onto the east slope (e.g., Mono Lake). A wide variety of interesting species, ranging from desert to boreal forms, may be found along this transect of the central state.
Tim Manolis (Ph.D., University of Colorado) is an artist, writer, and field biologist who lives in Sacramento. He is author of Dragonflies and Damselflies of California, and illustrator of Field Guide to the Butterflies of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento Valley Regions and the Field Guide to Spiders of California and the Pacific Coast States.

Join us at 7 PM, September 20th, the third Wednesday of the month, in the Tuolumne County Library on Greenley Road in Sonora to enjoy the presentation. The public is always welcome at our monthly programs and refreshments are served after the program. Products and publications on a wide range of birding topics are on display and on sale at each meeting.
