Vernal Pool Stroll

April 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Every spring, small depressions in the northern forest floor come alive, filling with rain, melting snow, and, eventually, salamander and frog eggs. By summer’s end, many of these vernal pools will have dried out, revealing little trace of the life they contained in April & May. Join us for a moderately-strenuous, 1.2-mile round-trip hike to a hilltop vernal pool at the Horatio Colony Nature Preserve, where we’ll explore the exquisite, ephemeral world of spring-breeding amphibians.

Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Daniels Hill Road in Keene at 1:00 p.m. For more information, contact Brett Amy Thelen at thelen@harriscenter.org or (603)358-2065. Co-sponsored by the Horatio Colony Nature Preserve & Harris Center for Conservation Education.
