Dragonfly Week is an annual celebration of our favourite insects – dragonflies and damselflies!
'It starts on the third Saturday in July and ends the next weekend, running for 9 days in total. We invite everyone to join in the celebrations, wherever you are! Our team of volunteers, partner organisations and Dragonfly Hotspots put on a programme of events during Dragonfly Week each year so keep an eye on our ‘Events’ page to see if there is something happening near you. We encourage everyone to celebrate these amazing insects in their own way too. For example, you could head to your nearest pond, it could be a garden pond, a community pond at the park or on a nature reserve, and spend some time on a sunny day looking for dragonflies. Then you could let us know what you see and submit a record. Or how about having a go at baking some cakes, making a seed bomb, creating a dragonfly from some craft materials… the possibilities are endless.'
