Do you love frogs and salamanders? Want to learn more about vernal pools?
On Saturday, April 30, 2022, from 10:00am to 11:00am, join the Lebanon Conservation Commission and Emma Tutein, Conservation Field Specialist with UNH Cooperative Extension at the Ticknor Conservation Area for a family-friendly vernal pool exploration! You’ll get an introduction to the ecology of vernal pools and a chance to see some vernal pool critters up close (from the edge of the pool – your feet will stay nice and dry!).
- Please register, space and parking are limited
- Limited parking is available on Dulac St. Meet at the vernal pool trailhead or head on up to the vernal pool.
- Recommended gear: polarized sunglasses, a brimmed hat, insect repellant.
- No dogs, please. Dogs can inadvertently dislodge egg masses or disturb breeding amphibians in vernal pools.
A Deeper Dive
11:30am - 2:00pm
After the introductory exploration, attendees are welcome to join us for a deeper dive into vernal pools from 11:30am to 2:00pm. You’ll learn more about how to identify a variety of vernal pool species egg masses, macroinvertebrates, and an introduction to documenting vernal pools. We will visit additional vernal pools during this portion of the workshop, which will involve driving from site to site. We will be taking a short lunch break, so you may want to bring your own food and water.
Sign up to reserve a space in this afternoon session. Space is limited.
