Installing a Vernal Pool Workshop

November 09, 2018 01:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Location: The Lodge at Willow Lake, 41085 Willowsford Lane , Aldie, Virginia

(This event has been canceled and will be rescheduled) If you are a landowner who wants to learn how to install a vernal pool on your property, then this workshop is for you! Mike Hayslett of Virginia Vernal Pools LLC will lead a two day workshop, in which participants will gain hands-on experience by participating in the construction of two vernal pool's on PEC's Roundabout Meadows farm property near Gilberts Corner.

Vernal pools are seasonal wetlands that are covered by shallow water for variable periods from winter to spring, but may be completely dry for most of the summer and fall. They are important habitat for amphibian and insect species during their breeding seasons.

The workshop will consist of a classroom session and a field session. Participants should be prepared to be outside for ~8 hours in cold weather. If weather is inclement, the event will take place the following weekend.
