Join the Mattapoisett Land Trust for a vernal pool walk on the Martocci Preserve in the Old Aucoot District. Meet at the MLT parking area on Prospect Road. Rubber boots are highly recommended.

We’ll see what wonders the pool holds- tadpoles certainly but perhaps other vertebrates and perhaps invertebrates. All are welcome.

Cost: Free

Frogs and salamanders use vernal pools across Buzzards Bay to breed. They lay their eggs, which look like gelatinous masses, in this delicate ecosystem.
