April Outing: Exploring Vernal Pools

It may be hard to believe but spring is really coming! Even with some ice left, frogs and salmanders are making their way to the vernals pools. On Saturday, April 11, from 1 pm to 3 pm, we’re pleased to again have educator Brandon Abbott show us the mysteries of the vernal pool in Northampton. A great family event, Brandon will bring equipment for gathering and inspecting fairy shrimp and other species up close!
