Nonmembers can join today during checkout and take immediate advantage of member prices.

Each spring, frogs and salamanders emerge from their winter sleep and make their way to vernal pools across the state to start another years cycle of reproduction. Join us as we look for and examine vernal pools at our local sanctuaries. Learn which species are dependent on them for their survival and how you can get involved in protecting these critical wetlands.
