March NHSM Herp Club Meeting

Spring is just around the corner. That means amphibians will start to stir looking for a vernal pool. At this month’s Herp Club meeting, NHSM Herp Curator, Tom Scollins, will present a primer on vernal pools, shallow depressions that usually contain water for only part of the year that serve as essential breeding habitat for amphibians (salamanders and frogs). The second half of the meeting will be a Herp Show n Tell. Bring your herp to the meeting, and share something special about it with the group. It would be great to get a screen shot of herps in the Zoom windows.
