To Ensure Conservation of Minnesota’s Dragonflies and Damselflies Through Research and Education.


Pressures such as land development, invasive species, and climate change could drastically impact dragonfly populations.  Since the creation of the Minnesota Odonata Survey Project (MOSP) back in 2006, which ended funding in 2012, untold numbers of new county records and two dozen species of dragonflies and damselflies were added to the Minnesota State Species list.  Hundreds of people interacted with dragonflies and damselflies in ways they never had done before.  A core group of folks became passionate about this work.This core of dedicated folks is why, even after MOSP ended, there is still momentum to continue studying and teaching about these amazing insects.  Each field season brings new approaches of educating and involving the public, while at the same time doing real Odonata research.  YOU can help by becoming an MDS member, donating, attending a workshop, submitting new records, and by inviting others to get involved.  We are always looking for new sites to survey or hold workshops and partners to join us.  Are you in?
