Join Arne Peterson for the sights and sounds of a vernal pool in springtime. We’ll check out the peepers, wood frogs, salamanders, and fairy shrimps. You will need a strong flashlight, waterproof boots, and a lawn chair. Once the sun goes down, we can all sit around the campfire and discuss what we saw.  Feel free to bring snacks and drinks. Meet up at 6:30 p.m. at Arne’s place (address to be given upon RSVP).

Limited to 12 people. The cost is $10.
