It’s a Dragonfly Summer at Lake Conestee Nature Park! Did you know dragonflies are voracious predators? Their hunting accuracy rate is 95%, far more than the 25% accuracy rate of a lion!! This is partly due the fact that their eyes have 30,000 lenses to see their prey from all directions! They also have four wings that all operate separately, giving them the ability to turn on a dime!
Lake Conestee Nature Park is abuzz with the sound of dragonfly wings soaring over our meadows and wetlands. Come join us as we get to know our four winged friends this summer! In June we will enjoy a dragonfly paint and picnic (we’ll supply the paint, you supply your picnic) time with artist and illustrator, Samantha Bell. In July we will be dipping for dragonflies in the wetland area. In August we will be dashing through our meadows in search of dragonflies.
