Join our volunteer team to survey our ten vernal pools throughout the 2021 season, beginning Feb 1 and ending May 30. In this virtual workshop, volunteers will receive an introduction to vernal pools, water quality monitoring, and our methods for sampling for animal life. Field training will occur in small groups on Saturdays in February. Volunteers are expected to commit to visiting our pools once per month for 4-6 hours throughout the survey season which includes off-trail hiking. Registration for the workshop is required. Recommended for ages 12 and older. All minors must be accompanied by an adult caretaker.
