Vernal Pool Field Work

Shepley's Hill Vernal Pool Field Work

A small group of students has worked for the past several years to certify and study this wetland atop the hill at the back of our campus.  We need to collect regular data and there is no better time than spring to see what is breeding there!

Students are invited to gather for lunch and a walk on Friday, May 26th.  School has a noon dismissal this day, so we will gather then for a quick pizza lunch and information on the type of animals we might see and the kind of data we need to collect.

Following lunch we will walk for 20 minutes to the top of the hill and explore the vernal pool ecosystem for an hour and a half.  Pick up will be at 3:00 (instead of noon).

Please email Mit Wanzer at mit@theparkerschool.org with a quick RSVP if you are interested in joining us and can help pay for lunch.  All are welcome!
