  • Details
  • Vernal pools are small wetlands that provide essential habitat for insects, crustaceuans, frogs, salamanders, turtles and many other wildlife species.

We will do some hands on exploring of these unique wetlands looking for wildlife that contribute to this small and valuable ecosystem. Please dress for the weather and wear boots if you want to wade into the wetland. 1:00 PM both days.
