Dragonfly Days--Dragonfly homes

There wouldn't be any dragonflies without wetlands. Dragonflies depend on wetlands as a place to lay eggs. Wetlands provide the places where dragonfly nymphs grow up. Wetlands also produce most of the food that dragonflies eat.

Wetlands are endangered areas. Not only does pollution affect dragonfly nurseries but land development fills in wetland areas that dragonflies depend on for food.

If you like dragonflies as much as I do, get involved in a wetland conservation program. A good resource and place to learn more about wetlands and how you can help is the Indiana DNR.
