The Vernal Pools at Agassiz Rock in Manchester are teeming with Spring peepers.

Join the The Trustees of Reservations on an exploration of the pools at Agassiz Rock reservation, and learn how you can certify and protect vernal pools. When vernal pools become certified, we can prevent development on and around them.
