Vernal pools are mysterious temporary bodies of water until you take a closer look. They are homes to frogs, salamanders, and even fairy shrimp.

Learn more about vernal pools before we venture out to investigate one of the vernal pools found at Blue Hills - who will we discover living there? These "wicked big puddles" may be one of the best places to study the relative health of the nature of Massachusetts.
