Vernal Pool

When: April 9th, 1:00 - 3:00 PM

Where: Tompson Street Reservation, Gloucester


This will be a family-friendly event and interactive walk perfect for children and adults of all ages! The group will walk about a half-mile into the Tompson Street Reservation to a large vernal poool. Once at the vernal pool, you will be able to venture around the edges and look for a variety of fascinating egg masses under Rick's direction.

Rick will inform the group about the species of egg masses and organisms found, as well as some of their natural information.

The Tompson Street Reservation is the largest property within the Greenbelt Reservation system, and consists of vernal pools, woodlands and many old wagon trails, which offer perfect locations to witness vernal pool life up close.
