As early spring rains fill depressions in the warming earth, many species of amphibians leave their winter hiding places to engage in their spring nuptials. It is a rite of spring that few people know about, and fewer still take the time to observe and photograph this mini-migration to the water. Mark Tegges has been doing just that for most of his life. He will share his understanding of vernal pools and the animals that briefly inhabit them, as well as his spectacular photographs.
This is the first presentation in our new monthly program “Nature Adventures Speaker Series”. We hope to bring you interesting and exciting outdoor experiences from around Maryland and the world. Look for something new on the fourth Friday of each month at the Maryland Naturalist Center!
