Virtual Vernal Pool Exploration
Saturday May 15 at 1:00.
This program is recommended for families with students in elementary and middle school.
When walking through the woods, it’s possible you’ve passed by one of the most unique habitats that occur in Massachusetts without giving it a second thought: a vernal pool. These shallow bodies of water usually dry up by mid-summer, but during spring are home to beautiful and fascinating creatures such as blue-spotted salamanders and “water tigers.” Join us for a 45 minute virtual program where Andrew Prazar of North Shore Nature Programs will broadcast live from a local vernal pool. Andrew will show you how to safely collect and observe animals from these pools while also discussing their unique adaptations and lifecycles.
This program was funded through federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
