Dragonfly Survey Takes Place In Hancock County

More than 100 people came to the Oakwoods Nature Preserve in Findlay over the weekend. The group took pictures of dragonflies and damselflies so they could count how many species are in our area.

Shane Myers is the northwest regional coordinator for the Ohio Dragonfly Survey. He says the insect can be a test of local water quality. Some species only live where there isn’t much sediment or pollution. Dragonflies also eat mosquitos.

Hancock County has around 67 species of dragonflies.
