Minnesota Odonata Survey Project

The Minnesota Odonata Survey Project (MOSP) is a volunteer effort to determine the ranges and distributions of Minnesota’s dragonfly and damselfly populations. Citizen-scientists (potentially, you!) will catch and identify dragonflies and damselflies in Minnesota and will report back to the MOSP with 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.

Support for this project was received from the USFWS State Wildlife Grants Program, the Minnesota Game and Fish Heritage Enhancement Fund, and the Minnesota Nongame Wildlife Fund through the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Division of Ecological Resources.
