Happy first day of spring

Posted on Mar 20, 2014

Happy first day of Spring everyone! I took a walk on the trails here at RTPI in search of some signs of spring and found a bunch of vernal pools that could be used in only a matter of a couple short weeks! This particular ephemeral pool has thawed around its edges, so Jefferson Salamanders and Wood Frogs may soon be on the move to breed and lay their eggs there. Stay tuned as we will keep watch for the mass migration to begin and share pictures of our charismatic spring breeders.
