|The pool is quite full in the springtime during our 2013 Vernal Pool Exploration workshop!|

This one in a million photograph of two bobcats was the amazing result of our previous scouting!
We plan to leave the bobcats alone for a couple more weeks, until Saturday April 12th. We're guessing they've moved on anyways, expecting kittens! Please join us that day (and on the evening of Thursday April 10 for an introductory presentation on vernal pools!) for our second annual CR Program vernal pool exploration in partnership with Hilltown Land Trust. The pool will be (hopefully) thawed and the wood frogs and salamander eggs freshly laid. We'll be joined by Bill Lattrell to guide us in what we find. See flyer below, and you must RSVP to register.
