Kids Nature Program: Hidden Wonders of the Vernal Pool

Have you ever wondered which creatures are active in the early spring? Then exploring the Hidden Wonders of the Vernal Pool on Saturday, April 12, 2:00-3:30 p.m. may be for YOUR family.  This free program led by Washtenaw County naturalist Shawn Severance takes place at the Miller/Smith Preserve in Lima Twp.

Discover what happens as leafy woodland hollows fill with meltwater and the forest comes alive with songs of springtime. Explore who lives here? Where do they go in the summer when these pools fade away?

Find out what you can discover during this free event. Be sure to dress accordingly though and prepared to get muddy. This event is for children and for adults. For more information, visit parks.ewashtenaw.org, call 971- 6337 or send Shawn a message at severances@ewashtenaw.org.
