      Vernal Pool Critter Walks 2018

      During the wet phase, the pools host many dozens of species of aquatic invertebrates. Half of them have not even been named! Watching and wondering about them draws us deeper into their ancient, mysterious world. Bigger critters who eat them come to the pools to dine: frogs, snakes, shore birds, wading birds, and more. If you want to meet them, along with their famous pool mates the Fairy Shrimp and Tadpole Shrimp, join us for a Critter Walk! PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Tours last two hours and are led by trained docents. Tours are FREE but we welcome tax-deductible donations in support of our environmental science programs for schoolchildren. These tours are intended for individuals and families. Tours are NOT SUITED FOR ORGANIZED GROUPS, e.g., scout troops, photography clubs, special classes, etc. Please inquire about private tours. Reservations are required and YOU MAY ONLY REGISTER YOUR OWN HOUSEHOLD. If you are inviting others (who do not live with you) to come along, please ask them to register separately. Tickets are limited to 2 adults and 3 kids per household. If you have more than 2 adults and/or 3 kids in your household, please contact us. If you need to make special arrangements, please contact us. If you cannot honor your reservation, please free up your space for someone on the waitlist by canceling your reservation as early as possible. All tours run rain or shine. You will be walking over uneven ground in direct sun or possibly rain. Please come prepared with sturdy walking shoes, long pants, rain gear, and/or sunscreen & sun hats.
