- January 20th – 7:00pm – State of the Dragons: The Ohio Odonata Survey – Linda Gilbert – Virtual Presentation – In 2017, a new state-wide Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) survey was undertaken to assess the diversity andstatus of these wetland insects.

Dragonflies and damselflies are her specialty, and she conducts dragonfly/damselfly surveys on several park properties. Linda is a co-author (with Larry Rosche and Judy Semroc) of Dragonflies and Damselflies of Northeast Ohio, 2nd ed. field guide and is also the northeast Ohio regional coordinator for the Ohio Odonata Survey.
