Virtual Lunchtime Lecture: Vernal Pools

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.

Registration is required to receive the link to the Microsoft Teams program. When you receive an email confirmation, please click on the link in the confirmation to make sure it opens properly prior to the program. Call or email us if you have difficulties registering.
