Every spring, a host of amazing creatures risk their lives traveling to isolated seasonal wetlands known as vernal pools. These special places are nurseries for creatures that otherwise would not survive. Join theĀ Westport Land Conservation Trust‘s Outreach and Stewardship Coordinator Brendan Buckless to explore several vernal pools and discuss the life cycle of the strange creatures which inhabit them. Wear waterproof footwear and polarized sunglasses if you have them.

Cost: Free
