Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Beyond Birds: Dragonflies & Damselflies in Southeast Arizona Field Trip

Have you been curious about dragonflies but mystified by the challenge of identifying them?

Join Michael Bogan, Assistant Professor of Aquatic Biology at the University of Arizona, for a field trip focused on examining the odonate diversity found around Southeast Arizona. This trip will be a two part outing starting at Sweetwater Wetlands for an easy and accessible walk, followed by a more “moderate” level of walking at the nearby Santa Cruz River which will involve more walking on uneven ground or even getting our feet wet. These two locations will enable us to see the difference between lotic and lentic species. Specific meeting instructions will be emailed beforehand. Limited to 12 participants.

  • 7:00am – 11:00am
  • $15/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Easy (Flat walking trails.)


“Drive Yourself” field trips will meet on-site at birding locations and you will received detailed directions.
