Once you’ve opened 0ur interactive map of vernal pools on public land in the Monadnock Region, click on a placemarker for site-specific photos and data from any one of the 237 documented or 64 potential vernal pools 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.

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 fourteen 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.
