Those night-time, warm, drumming rains.... they mean one thing!
The vernal pools are about to become active with late winter/ early spring!
In an effort to safeguard the specially state designated vernal pools at Cascades West, and the species that are entirely dependent upon them, GWLT is putting up new informational signs tomorrow.
We are asking folks within 500' of the pools to: Keep to the trail; Have your faithful dog leashed (so they don't go for a swim!); and Pack out any trash or waste.
Thanks so much!
We all look forward to the egg masses, the 'cheep' of the wood frogs, the colorful salamanders, and the rest of the vernal pool gang!
QUESTIONS? Please feel free to send us a message on Facebook or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
(Thanks to Americorps Dude Tyler Maikath for the incredible informational signage!)
