Wisconsin Odonata Survey

Wisconsin Dragonfly Society logo

The Wisconsin Dragonfly Society was formed to study and protect the Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) in Wisconsin, whether they are resident or migrating through. It fosters appreciation, study and enjoyment of Wisconsin dragonflies and damselflies and the aquatic habitats on which they depend.

The WDS began in the fall of 2012. Please check back as we continue to develop our site and facebook pages.
