Ashland

As I try to get everything up and running, I will attempt to publish species/abundance lists for each county. This is an example page as I get more of the scripts working and access to more databases. These numbers and abundances are from the Ohio Odonata Society Database (current up to 2017), but I hope to get more compiled databases together.

If you would like information for a different county up sooner rather than later, just email me and I will put that county higher up on the to-do list.
