Meet salamanders, insects and more in this fascinating environment.
Greenbelt and North Shore Nature Programs present this outdoor Vernal Pools program for families.
Come discover what lives in these ponds that appear in the spring and then disappear by summer. We'll scoop up some pond water to see who lives there, we'll look under nearby logs for wiggly salamanders, and we'll touch slimy frog egg masses (the ones that don't have frogs in them-- no frogs will be harmed!). Wear your Wellington boots so you can go right up to the edge of the pond!
