Are you interested in seeing a vernal pool come to life this spring?  Once Mother Nature proceeds with the spring awakening, we will be offering a series of walks to the pools along the trail here at the Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary.  We will identify various insects, look for egg masses and observe as they hatch.  If timing is right, we may even have a chance to see congress!  Salamander congress, that is.[lightbox link=”” thumb=”×200.jpg” width=”320″ align=”right” title=”” frame=”true” icon=”image” caption=”Congress”]



Depending on interest, we will offer programs for adults and also for families.



Dates and Times TBA, we will know more once the pools start to wake up.  Email with your name and contact info and we will notify you when we have a better idea of timing.  You can also call 413-267-9654 and leave your name and phone number.
