Minnesota Dragonfly Society

The Minnesota Dragonfly Society (MDS) - Ensuring conservation of Minnesota’s dragonflies and damselflies through research and education.

Citizen-scientists (potentially, you!) will catch and identify dragonflies and damselflies in Minnesota and will report their findings. There are many species, some considered rare, in Minnesota whose ranges are not known. Finding a new county record is a common occurrence and there are many new state records to be found as well.


The Minnesota Dragonfly Society (MDS) has applied for 501(c)(3) status. Approval is expected shortly.
