Vernal Pool Walk
Join Pat Huckery of the MA Fisheries and Wildlife scientific team as we examine vernal pool activity at Throne Hill and understand why these ecosystems are so important.
Vernal pools provide habitat to several state-listed species of concern (like our favorite salamander) dependent on this unique wetland type which has been devastated by development in the region. These pools provide breeding habitats for many species and provide stepping stones which allow movement of others through the landscape. This is your chance to see these creatures where they live. This parcel is designated as Priority Habitats by the Massachusetts Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program and have been mapped as Estimated Habitats of Rare Wildlife by that agency.
Wear appropriate shoes and protect yourself against mosquitoes and ticks. Please click “going” and list attendees so we don’t leave you behind. Contact Susan Hughes: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
