Vernal Pool Workshops, Adams County Conservation District

There are many vernal pools along South Mountain, but a lack of awareness about their ecological importance in surrounding communities. There is also strong development pressure in the South Mountain area which could have a detrimental effect on vernal pools if left misunderstood. To increase understanding of vernal pools and promote the protection of vulnerable species, Adams County Conservation District in conjunction with Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve hosted hands-on public workshops targeted to the general public, local schools and municipal officials in surrounding communities.
