Event description

Description

During the wet phase, the Mather Field Vernal Pools host dozens of species of aquatic invertebrates. Half of them have not even been named yet! 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 on:
