We will set out and explore the phenomenon of the sometimes elusive vernal pool. These relatively short-lived oases provide the breeding ground and nurseries of several species of amphibians. They are packed with the promise of Spring and we intend to celebrate their importance. We will also keep our eyes open for other signs of Spring and will bring along some sampling tools and check out our findings back in our Discovery Room's digital microscope. Waterproof footwear recommended.
