Vernal Pool Hike

Go on a moderately difficult three mile hike to explore the enchanting vernal pools of Promised Land State Park!  We'll collect organisms in our long cycle meadow vernal pool and search for Spotted salamander eggs in our short cycle shrub swamp vernal pool.  Please bring a snack, water and wear sturdy shoes.
