TCC Vernal Pool Walk

Sunday, April 21, 1pm at Smith Flats, Depot Road

It's been a long winter, still a lot of snow on the ground, but the weather forecast is very encouraging. With the warm temperatures and rain showers, we should have some amphibians moving to the earlier vernal pools. An easily accessible prime example is on Depot Road, across from the Remick Foundation Smith Flats field, which also has some prime peeper habitat.
Tamworth Conservation Commission will have its Vernal Pool Walk on Sunday, April 21, at 1 pm. Meet near the pool, which is west of the White Lake boat launch entrance and directly across from the field. Plenty of room for parking on the road shoulder and a couple of pull-offs. If you're the adventurous type, wear foot gear that will keep your feet dry.
