Yes, there are vernal pools in Cornwall!

The perceived absence of vernal pools in Cornwall was definitely challenged this spring. In April, the Cornwall Conservation Commission asked for the help of townspeople in identifying where they might be found.

We followed up on six reports with a visit to each area. Based on these observations, we are recommending three places be indicated on the natural resources inventory as vernal pool sites.

These small, seasonal wetlands are highly productive areas: an important egg-laying habitat for amphibians during the spring breeding season and then a rich source of food for various species of birds, mammals and reptiles.

We realize that this year was only a beginning of their documentation and we hope to continue our search next year.

Mary Dodge and Rene Langis
