JOE (Jersey Odonate Enthusiasts) is a "club" for people who enjoy dragonfly
and damselfly watching. There are no membership dues and no meetings with Robert's
Rules of Order. Field trips are organized during flight season (May - Sept, especially
June) to various places around the state. Anyone can "lead" a trip; you
don't have to be an expert in identification. Qualifications include knowing how
to get to an area, knowing where to look, and providing directions. There may be
totally informal winter meeting(s) at someone's house if they are willing to host,
where photos or some aspect of odeing can be discussed.
JOE promotes catch and release for ID purposes only unless it is a new state record
that needs a voucher specimen. Records from JOE trips will be posted on the
firstname.lastname@example.org listserv and significant records will be forwarded
to the NJ Odonata Survey for inclusion in its data collection.
