About This Event

With the return of spring comes a nightly chorus of chirps and peeps, but those aren’t birds you’re hearing!

Join us as we seek out the frogs responsible in their unique, ephemeral habitat: the vernal pool. One of Spring’s most fascinating—and fleeting—features, vernal pools come and go with the changing of seasons. Discover how to find vernal pools, what other wildlife calls them home, why they play such an important role in their larger ecosystem, and what we can do to protect them.

Program Preparation

Please dress for the forecasted weather and bring water and anything else you may need. This class is entirely outdoors. Participants should expect to travel about 2 miles on pavement, gravel, or flat trails for the full duration of the class. Meet in front of the Farm Barn Orientation Center for check-in. We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the start of class.
