Talk on Vernal Pools with Kevin Tolan of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies
7-8p, Mar 8th, 2022
Thousands of seasonal woodland ponds, known as vernal pools, dot the Vermont landscape. Over thousands of years, species such as Spotted Salamanders have evolved to rely on these fishless bodies of water to breed. However, these unique ecosystems, and the species that inhibit them, are under increasing pressures and threats. Join Kevin Tolan, staff biologist at the Vermont Center for Ecostudies, to learn about these imperiled communities, what's being done to conserve them, and how you can help.This event is co-sponsored with the Norwich Public Library. Join us via Zoom.
