Vernal Pool Monitoring

 

 

 

A healthy watershed supports vernal pools.      These are seasonal, fish-free bodies of water that support the predator-reduced enviornment for breeding of certain speccies.     Some can not survive unless they have access to a vernal pool.

 

Volunteers monitor the health and safety of these pools and then protect the small crreatures such as the spotted salamander when they do their migration, often over busy road beds.
