Vernal pools are a vital breeding habitat for resident amphibians and invertebrates such as wood frogs, spotted and blue-spotted salamanders, and fairy shrimp. The MLT is once again offering an introduction to vernal pools through a field trip into the Tinkhamtown Woodlands on MLT’s Woodcock Preserve.
On Saturday, April 15, at 1:00 p.m., we’ll meet at the Tinkhamtown Woodlands parking area on Long Plain Road. We´ll proceed a short distance on the trail to the vernal pool. Together we will have fun learning about vernal pools and exploring a particularly productive one.
The exploration is free and open to all, including residents of other towns. Rubber boots or hiking shoes are recommended.
