Field Meetings


The Seventeenth field meeting has been postponed due to the Covid-19 global pandemic to 2022 and will be held at a time and place to be announced in the Philadelphia region. With Jon Gelhaus organizing the meeting, there are two possibilities offering a range of habitats - the New Jersey Pinelands or the Pennsylvania Pocono Mountains. See Fly Times 65 for further details.

Further announcements will be made here, in the Fly Times, and through our Dipterists mailing list server.
