Learn about one of the largest, most ancient insects on earth.
The dragonfly is one of the largest, most ancient insects on earth, and New Mexico has well over 100 species of them. Come find out more about this buzzing beast's life cycle, habitat, food preferences and how they help us humans out. See wild dragonflies up close, make a craft or just hang out by the water observing at the Festival Green.
Note: While the Dragonfly Festival usually happens around the Dragonfly Sanctuary Pond, the exhibit is closed during construction of the BUGarium arthropod building. The Pond is scheduled to reopen next year in 2015.
