With temperatures rising, the forest floor will be hopping with new life as frogs and other amphibians crowd into shallow basins of water to breed and lay their eggs. These areas are better known as vernal pools. They are an important type of wetlands in need of protection in New Jersey. This annual nighttime exploration provides a fun, outdoor learning experience for kids and adults alike. Discover the differences between a spring peeper, a chorus frog, and a wood frog. Learn how to tell the difference between salamander and frog eggs. And learn how all that we appreciate about springtime depends upon a few unassuming puddles of water on the forest floor.
 
Warm clothing and waterproof hiking boots are strongly recommended, and don’t forget your flashlight. Registration is required.
