Have you ever slogged for frogs in a vernal pond? Vernal ponds are temporary bodies of water that form in spring from rain and snow melt. Because these ponds lack predatory fish, they are used by frogs and salamanders to breed and lay eggs. Join us for this nighttime journey to explore these woodland ponds. Be prepared to get wet! Program limited to 25 participants. To register, contact Rick Wiltraut at email@example.com or 610-746-2810.
