Vernal Pool Walk

April 13, 2018 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Stephen Young Marsh Trail
Tabor Rd
Swanton, VT 05488

Join Park Ranger, David Frisque for a look at the life and activity in a vernal pool early in the spring.  Vernal pools are important breeding areas for some of the more reclusive and seldom seen amphibians such as wood frogs, and salamanders.  Because these temporary wetlands often dry up completely by late summer or early fall, egg laying and early development of juvenile salamanders and frogs must begin early in the spring.

The Vernal Pool walk will be at the Stephen Young Trail area.  Meet at the parking lot for the trail located on Tabor Road, about one mile past the refuge Visitor Center.  Look for roadside signage “Refuge Trails Parking.”  Bring a small flashlight and wear waterproof footwear.

Please call 802-868-4781 to register for this activity.
