Vernal Pools Part 2: "Fairies, Frogs, and Damsels! Spring and Summer Wildlife of Vernal Pools" with Joy Marzolf of The Joys of Nature.
Tune in and learn about the spring and summer wildlife that exist in vernal pools. In the spring, vernal pool animals are often in a race against time for survival before the pool dries up during the summer. From fairy shrimp to damselflies, green frogs and painted turtles, learn about these seasonal pools and the many creatures that might inhabit them. A Question and Answer session follows.
Joy Marzolf, former naturalist and educator for over 13 years at Mass Audubon's Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary and now with her own company, The Joys of Nature, will provide the answers to your questions and provide tips for exploring Wellesley’s vernal pools.
