Springtime explodes with life, especially in vernal pools which are temporary havens for unique species like fairy shrimp, wood frogs, and many macroinvertebrates. With dipping nets, microscopes, and ID charts, we'll carefully explore a vernal pool and discover the wonders this biodiverse area has to offer.
