Ferryville Tourism Council to host July 14 Chautauqua Program

The Ferryville Tourism Council will be hosting the second in its Summer Series of Chautauqua Programs in Ferryville, WI Wednesday, July 14 at the South Shelter at Sugar Creek Park along Hwy. 35, The Great River Road. Dan Jackson will present a program entitled “Dragonflies and Damselflies” at 6:30 p.m.

This program will be outside at the park shelter, and not in the Ferryville Village Hall.

Jackson is an avid birder, outdoorsman, naturalist, nature photographer and citizen scientist for dragonflies, damselflies and birds of Wisconsin. He helps with Fall Migration Day as well as birding hikes on Sugar Creek Bluff. For this presentation, he will provide an introduction to the insect order Odonata, which includes dragonflies and damselflies.

There are picnic tables under the shelter, but feel free to bring a lawn chair and bug spray to keep other insects away. Dragonflies and damselflies do not bite.
