Ever wonder what is making all those 'BLEEP-BLEEP-BLEEPS' and 'CHIRP- CHIRPS' as you walk by the woods on a warm, wet, spring day or night?

Is it birds?



Join us for a free, family-friendly event to learn about vernal ponds and the wildlife that depend on them.

Vernal ponds are temporary, fishless wetlands that fill with rainfall and snow melt.

They become the seasonal breeding and feeding grounds for many intriguing amphibians and insects, as well as the reptiles, birds, and mammals that depend on them for food.

The program will include Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team's 'Vernal Ponds,' a 15-minute video filmed entirely on Cape Ann that will introduce vernal pond ecology.

Rick Roth from the Team will then touch on the importance of the certification and protection process, offer a little time for Q & A, and a chance to view a few LIVE frogs, salamanders, and other critters.

PLEASE REGISTER, space is limited!

For more information and free registration.

Co-sponsored by The Swampscott Conservancy and UUCGL.

Ample, free parking available.
