Nature Gathering: Vernal Pools

  • Mar 17, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • Maryland Naturalist Center

Would you like to meet other like-minded people who are interested in nature? Would you like to share what you’ve discovered outdoors? Do you have questions about what you see and hear outside? 

Join us monthly to meet other outdoor people, share your discoveries, or see what others having been finding in their travels and in their own backyards.  (You may be surprised!)

This month we'll focus on vernal pools.  We'll have some animals that live in vernal pools available for you to examine and compare.  This event will get you ready to join us on a vernal pool hike.

Our naturalists will be on hand for help identifying any plant, insect, bird, etc.  If it's feasible (and ethical!), bring in any other items that have you've been wondering about. You can also bring photos, images on your phone, or files on a thumb drive.  We'll have microscopes and magnifying lenses on hand for a closer look at what you bring.

Or just come to explore the amazing natural history collections at the Maryland Naturalist Center and have an informal visit.

All ages are welcome.

We’ll be hosting this event on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

    I now cannot attend. Something happened that needs my attention, so I unfortunately cannot attend this Sunday. You all will surely have a great gathering.

    Hi Karyn, I'm waiting on our permit from the DNR before posting the dates. We need the permit to be in the park after dark. We are planning to run them mid thru late March.
