Vernal Pool Walk with Jim Arrigoni

There is always some aspect of nature taking center stage depending on the time of year. In April, vernal pools steal the show. On the first warm, rainy nights of spring, otherwise secretive amphibians fall over themselves to be the first to lay their eggs in these temporary wetlands that will disappear by late summer. With conservation biologist Jim Arrigoni, we’ll explore around the edges of the vernal pools and other wetlands at Deer Pond Farm, looking for eggs of Wood Frogs and Spotted Salamanders as well as the diverse and abundant invertebrate life. If you have them, bring polarized sunglasses for better viewing into the water.
