Dive into the unique biology of vernal pools with this presentation by local experts. Why are vernal pools so special and what is being done to protect them? Where can you see them in the Laguna de Santa Rosa? Kandis Gilmore (Sonoma State University), Michelle Halbur (Pepperwood Preserve), and Trish Tartarian (Wildlife Research Associates) will highlight the endemic pollinators, native flora, and the endangered California Tiger Salamander found in vernal pools of the Santa Rosa plain. We will end by discussing land protections and conservation of vernal pools in the Laguna watershed.
