Explore some of the South Shore’s hidden pockets with Teacher Naturalist Doug Lowry. He will take the group out together in the van, guided by a spirit of curiosity and adventure. Among other signs of spring, we will explore the phenomenon of the sometimes elusive vernal pool, a relatively short-lived oasis that provides the breeding ground and nursery for several species of amphibians.

We will bring sampling tools and check out our findings under our Discovery Room’s digital microscope upon our return. For adults and families with children ages 6 and up. Preregistration is required. $12/$10 member. Waterproof footwear is recommended.
