Our interactive map of vernal pools on public land in the Monadnock Region, complete with photo-documentation, was last updated in the summer of 2017. Once you’ve opened the map, click on a placemarker for site-specific photos and data from any one of the 194 documented or 93 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 85 volunteers, including a number of Keene State College and Antioch University New England students, over the course of eleven 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.
