Event Details

Have you ever followed a deafening, quacking chorus through the woods to find a pool of water filled with frogs?  Have your kids or grandkids wondered what might be those jelly-looking blobs in the water?  Grab the kids, slip on your muck boots, and join Steep Rock Association (SRA) for an adventure to some of our ecological hotspots – vernal pools.

Search the waters for frogs, salamanders, tiny critters, and more.  Take a closer look at egg masses and learn how to identify who placed them in the water.  Lastly, leave with a special family experience to remember for springs to come.
