Fens, lakes and creeks are home to a diversity of gorgeous dragonflies. Species we’ll likely see on this weekend include the Petaltail, Clubtails, and Cruiser. We’ll start by searching for dragonflies in and near Parks Creek on the Flowing Waters land. On Saturday, we’ll explore dragonfly habitat in and near Yreka after a morning introduction to dragonfly biology, life cycles and identification. Sunday’s half day session will focus on Gumboot Lake.

Our headquarters is a serene retreat center near the Mt. Eddy road. We’ll be lodged in Namaste House, which accommodates 13 people in double- and triple- bed rooms and queen-sized beds for couples. Flowing Waters also features a deck overlooking the creek, a refreshing swimming hole and many rare plants on the land.
