Suitable for adults
The Albany Pine Bush Preserve is home to many interesting Odonates (dragonflies and damselflies). Join us for an afternoon of dragon hunting as we search some of the wetlands in the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. We will meet at the Discovery Center for a briefing. Then, depending on the weather and the state of our wetlands, we will caravan over to another location or walk to a site behind the Discovery Center. Participants are responsible for providing their own transportation. We will be spending time off-trail. Hiking off-trail may increase your exposure to ticks. It is recommended that all visitors to the Albany Pine Bush Preserve wear pants with long socks that can be pulled up over their pant legs and shirts that are tucked into the waistband. Dress in footwear and clothing you don't mind getting wet and dirty.
