With temperatures rising, the forest floor will be hopping with new life as frogs and other amphibians crowd into shallow puddles of water to breed and lay their eggs. These puddles, better known as vernal pools, tell us a lot about nature here in New Jersey. And we have to hurry – they disappear quickly. 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. Find out how far an endangered spotted salamander will walk to find a mating pool. 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.
