Vernal pools are seasonal pools that fill in our forest and provide valuable habitat for species such as salamanders and frogs.  At Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary, we have been monitoring our vernal pools for years studying their hydrology and resident species.

Join our training to become a member of our vernal pool volunteer team who will survey our ten vernal pools throughout the 2019-2020 season beginning Dec 1 and ending May 30. Volunteers receive full training on water quality monitoring and sampling for animal life. Volunteers are expected to commit to visiting our pools once per month for 4-6 hours throughout the survey season which includes off-trail hiking.
