Monadnock Region Vernal Pools

Click on any placemarker in our interactive map of vernal pools on public land in the Monadnock Region for photos and data from the 246 documented and 58 potential vernal pools identified by our volunteers on public and conserved land in southwest New Hampshire. Green pins represent documented vernal pools; orange pins represent potential vernal pools that need to be revisited during the amphibian breeding season. Last updated in February 2023.

This map represents the collective work of more than 100 volunteers, including a number of Keene State College and Antioch University New England students, over the course of 16 field seasons. Many potential vernal pools still need to be ground-truthed. To help, join us for a volunteer training or contact Vernal Pool Project coordinator Brett Amy Thelen.
