“Vernal-Poolooza” with the Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition

April 27 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

A mass of salamander eggs observed at a vernal pool within the Brian Tierney Preserve in Roxbury

Co-hosted with the Roxbury Land Trust

That “wicked big puddle” in the woods could be more than just a big puddle – it might just be a vernal pool!  Carol Haskins, Executive Director from  the Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition will present an informative talk about how to identify a vernal pool and why these springtime wetlands so special within the local ecosystem. Most importantly, you’ll learn which organisms – certain species of frogs, salamanders, and invertebrates – will ONLY use vernal pools to raise their young. Haskins will also highlight efforts being made by local conservation organizations to protect these important wetlands.

The program is geared towards adults, but all ages are welcome!
