Colin Jones, provincial arthropod zoologist, Natural Heritage Information Centre, dealing primarily with rare species. He is co-author of “A Field Guide to the Dragonflies and Damselflies of Algonquin Provincial Park and Surrounding Area.” Colin Jones is a naturalist who can connect us to nature. The beautiful dragonfly or damselfly, silently skimming the surface of the water, is enchanting. He will distinguish between the two and outline their life cycles and talk about conservation, and habitats of the dragonflies and damselflies of Ontario. They play vital roles in terrestrial and aquatic habitats as predators feeding on a variety of mosquitoes and biting flies, and as prey for birds.
