Vernal Pool Monitoring Workshop

March 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free
VT vernal pool

Vernal pools are unique, ephemeral wetlands that provide critical habitat for many species, particularly pool-breeding amphibians and invertebrates. Landowners and private citizens have the opportunity to make a big difference in vernal pool conservation by protecting a single pool or complex of pools on their property or in their local community. Alex Wells of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies (VCE) will conduct a workshop to train citizen scientists to monitor these special wetland habitats, using the VCE’s monitoring protocols.

This workshop will be indoors and will not have “field” component. Admission is free to all, but pre-registration is required. To sign up, contact Alex at awells@vtecostudies.org. For any questions regarding the training component, call the VCE at 802-649-1431, or check their  vernal pool information page.
