Vernal Pools: Introduction to a Unique Wetland Habitat
August 2 @ 7:00 pm
Vernal pools, also known as ephemeral or seasonal pools, are an important yet often overlooked wetland. As the name suggests, they are temporary pools only holding water for a brief time each year. During that time, they are home to mysterious shrimp, developing dragonfly larvae, and are critical breeding grounds for several of our local salamander and frog species. These vernal pools are in rapid decline due to development. Join Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s Jenny Erickson for a look into the wildlife that use these pools and what we can all do to help protect these sensitive wetlands. This program is co-sponsored with the Loudoun County Public Library. No registration necessary.
