Event Description: 

Vernal pools are fishless ephemeral spring ponds that form in the forest and by midsummer they are gone! So what's so special about them? Vernal pools are essential to many amphibians and other aquatic creatures' life cycles. During this program Naturalist Emma Lorusso will teach us about the importance of vernal pools. Afterwards we will go out into the night to visit a vernal pool and try to get a glimpse of what activities these nocturnal creatures engage in.
