Vernal Pool Project Volunteer Training
Sunday, April 22, 2018,
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Vernal pools are ephemeral woodland ponds that serve as critical amphibian breeding habitat and as important feeding grounds and shelter for many reptiles, birds, and mammals. In efforts to protect these vital yet often overlooked ecosystems, we’re once again training volunteers to identify and document vernal pools, with special focus on lands where information is needed for conservation planning – including the Harris Center’s own protected lands.
Sunday, April 22, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Harris Center. We’ll cover the building blocks of vernal pool ecology indoors, then venture outside for hands-on instruction at a nearby vernal pool complex.
Space is limited, and registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Brett Amy Thelen at (603) 358-2065 or by email.
