At the Long Pasture vernal pool, students will become field biologists as they sift through bottom muck, collect real living creatures, and carry the specimens back to the outdoor lab at the Visitor Center. There they will study the creatures they found (and others that have already been collected) to determine how these creatures move their bodies to get what they need to survive. From the clever camouflaged caddisfly larvae to the fast paddling water boatman, students will see with their own eyes the amazing adaptations of the vernal pool creatures!
