It's Big Night!
Each year on the first warm rainy night of spring, wood frogs and mole salamanders begin a mass migration to vernal pools where they breed. If you happen to be out on one of these evenings, the experience can be spectacular. Tonight, a part of the sanctuary will be transformed into a Big Night scene. Participants will take a one-hour guided walk along the Vernal Pool Trail, where they will meet some interesting characters who will share some facts and stories about themselves, vernal pools, and this special time of year.
Some stops will feature live animals to see firsthand and learn about. The trail will lead to a real vernal pool where more animals and their eggs may be seen. Refreshments and other surprises will await you in the Barn upon your return. Don't miss this exciting educational night of family fun!
Please choose a walk time when you register: 6 pm, 6:10 pm, 6:20 pm, 6:30 pm, 6:40 pm, or 6:50 pm
