Vernal Pool Investigation Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 2:00pm Wildwood Reserve 254 Shepard Road, Waverly, NY 14892 (click here for directions)
The Carantouan Greenway has for the second time this year mowed, weed-wacked and cleared its 1 and 1/2 miles of trail at its Wildwood Reserve in the Town of Barton and invites the public to enjoy its serenity. Take a quiet walk, listen to the sounds of the birds and the rustle of the leaves and take some time to drop a fishing line in the pond. At 2:00 pm on Saturday July 15th, the Greenway will examine the rapidly disappearing waters in its vernal pools to see what life remains in its main pool. Vernal pools are isolated seasonal wetlands that are used by breeding amphibians such as toads, spotted salamanders and wood frogs. The question is — Do any of these critters still remain behind or have they all left the pool and ventured into the surrounding woods? Microscopes will be set up to examine the exposed critters of the deep. Come and share a look with a friend or child.
