Saturday, May 11, join the Woodbury Conservation Commission for a trip to the town forest to explore a handful of vernal pools in search of frogs, salamanders, and their eggs. In between pools, we will also take a look at some of the birds that call the forest home as we begin to inventory the species that call this public resource home. We will meet at Woodbury Elementary School at 1 p.m. and walk roughly 1/2 mile along mostly flat trails to the vernal pools, but we will spend short periods of time off-trail on potentially rocky terrain, so sturdy footwear is recommended. Waterproof is even better!
Free and open to all ages!
