Chewonki - Vernal Pools

We had the pleasure of a visit from the Chewonki Outreach Program.  We talked with our presenter about Vernal Pools.  If you don't know,

Vernal pools, also called vernal ponds or ephemeral pools, are temporary pools of water that provide habitat for distinctive plants and animals.
This is a great start to our Rivers, Lakes and Stream unit which involves an intensive field trip and learning program for first and second graders.  We had the fortune of visiting with a turtle, a frog and a salamander.
