Vanishing Vernal Pools and the Amphibians That Use Them
March 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and Mike Hayslett of Virginia Vernal Pools for this popular program on vernal pools and other seasonal wetlands and their inhabitants. Through this classroom session, you will learn where to find vernal pools in different settings and how other wetland habitats can function as vernal pools. You’ll also explore the life cycles of local amphibians, such as spotted salamanders, Jefferson salamanders, and wood frogs (right), as well as gain insights into the importance of very special crustaceans called fairy shrimp. This class provides a great foundation for those going out into the field with us.
