Vernal pools are a critical habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals, yet they only have water for a short period of time each season. Carly Borken will introduce you to the animals associated with vernal pools. She will also answer some important questions surrounding the mystery of vernal pools. How do the animals that need water live these habitats? Some animals choose these habitats for breeding. Why would they choose these habitats over other places that have consistent water? Find out the answers to these questions and others.

Reptiles and amphibians are defined by certain characteristics that set them apart from each other. Do you know what those are? Through up-close encounters with several live animals, participants will learn about the characteristics, habitats, life cycles, and adaptations of various species of reptiles and amphibians. Then, we’ll discuss what these two groups have in common.
