Closing Bell: Catching Dragonflies

The Parks Department recently hosted a group of two dozen girls at Strack Pond in Queens’ Forest Park, where they learned about dragonflies. The Wall Street Journal attended the session and witnessed the girls catching four species of dragonflies and eventually wading into the pond. The goal of the program is to teach urban students about preserving nature and making them aware that it is a career option.
