Favorite Places in Oregon and Washington

This is a preliminary list of places to find dragonflies and damselflies in the Pacific Northwest. My personal experience is focused on northwest Oregon but I have also listed sites in Washington where good specimens have been found by others.


Note that Cary Kerst's 2011 guidebook describes an excellent set of 30 sites all around Oregon.
