It's spring, which means plants and animals in the woodlands and wetlands at the sanctuary are starting to wake up. As the ground thaws and the snow and ice melt, an incredible migration to little woodland hollows called vernal pools takes place. We'll walk to these special wetlands and look for Wood Frogs and salamanders that use these pools to reproduce. Visiting an active vernal pool can be a wonderful, eye-opening experience.
