This program will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams; it will NOT take place face-to-face in the park.
Join us as we explore the fascinating creatures that live in vernal pools! Vernal pools, also sometimes called ephemeral pools or ponds, are temporary bodies of water created from the melting of snow and ice in the spring. They dry up at some point in the summer or fall, preventing fish and fully aquatic animals from using them. This makes them a crucial breeding ground for some species of amphibians and insects.
