With all of the rain this year, we are doing surprisingly well and yet still have time for office work.
Jim Lemon has taken the time to sort through the data yet again! Below is an excerpt from Jim’s extractions.
“Here’s a map from the iNaturalist Ohio Dragonfly Survey Project showing the 2019 Research Grade observations per county. This is as of 6AM 6/13 (and now out of date).
So, that means that as of June 13th (admittedly a week ago as of this writing), we have several counties that need attention. Some people have already taken the initiative to visit those areas to get records for this year, but most of them still need dragon records if the weather will cooperate.
Note that the map is about a week out of date at this point, but it will still give you some pointers. Also note that if you are in an area with lots of observations, we still want your observations! Plus, different species fly at different times of the year, so we expect to start seeing our mid-summer species now and in August our fall species.
Make sure to submit your records to iNaturalist by December 1st, 2019 if you aren’t submitting them as you go along through the summer. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to MaLisa or your regional coordinator. Let’s make this a great year!
