Training Workshops

 

If you are interested in participating in the Vernal Pool Patrol program, we strongly encourage you to attend one of our vernal pool training workshops!  These workshops generally consist of training in classroom and in the field.  The classroom portion will cover what vernal pools are, why are they important, plant and animal species found in vernal pools, and what the Vernal Pool Patrol program entails.  The field portion will include visiting and exploring a vernal pool, and learning how to collect data using the vernal pool monitoring protocol and how to identify the vernal pool indicator species and other plants and animals often found in vernal pools.
