Nature is always hinting at us. It hints over and over again. And suddenly we take the hint.

Vernal Pool Walk

Rain date Saturday, April 8, 3 pm

Vernal pools are the perfect outside classroom.  A vernal pool is a temporary wetland that contains water for only a few months in spring and early summer. Because it does not support fish predators, it is a haven for the eggs and larvae of amphibians and insects.  Join Wayne Browning, a former biology teacher and board member of the Tiverton Land Trust, and Linc Materna, a frog enthusiast, for an exploration of some vernal pools at Pardon Gray Preserve.  You may find egg masses from wood frogs and salamanders, tadpoles, fairy shrimp, and other spring wonders.  Accompanied by an adult companion, children are welcome. Open to Garden Club members and the broader community.
