Vernal Pool Exploration

Maine's Big Night Two youth hold flashlights and salamanders.


Join us as we visit vernal pools within the Community Forest in search of animals. These pools come alive after dark with all sorts of critters to explore, catch, observe, and release.

Meet at the DLLT office

Come see the magic of springtime by searching for wood frogs, spotted salamanders, water beetles, fingernail clams, and mayflies! Guides and nets will be provided but please bring your own headlamp.





Children explore a pond with nets, searching for frogs, salamanders, beetles, and other Big Night critters.
