Vernal Pool Magic


Join us at Long Pond Preserve to learn how vernal pools perform a magic trick each year, how they vanish during the heat of summer and return during the cool rains and melting snows of spring. Today is the Vernal Equinox, the perfect day to learn why vernal pools are important and meet some of their inhabitants. Indoor program with live animals. 

This free event is perfect for all ages.
