Vernal Pools

April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Each program will begin at 7 pm and last approximately one hour. Please register in advance for each webinar since registrations will close at 3 PM on the day of the event

Seasonal ponds – known as vernal pools – are full of life right now and

can be found throughout our area. (Bare Pond and Dolan Pond are two

examples.) Discover how these pools form and the many wonderful

adaptations that allow the invertebrates and amphibians that inhabit

these ephemeral pools to survive in the low oxygen water.  See fairy

shrimp, salamanders, wood frogs, and many more. We will also describe

the commonly available materials you need if you want to try your hand

at seeing these interesting creatures up close and personal by fishing for

some (catch and release only!) Presented by Barbara Bates,

Teacher Naturalist and Newton Conservators’ Board member
