In collaboration with Arrowwood Environmental, Vermont Center for Ecostudies is mapping locations of potential vernal pools throughout Vermont, and recruiting a corps of volunteers to field-verify the presence of these potential pools. In the process, we will develop a GIS layer of potential and known vernal pools, as well as a database populated with biological and physical attributes of each verified pool. With partial funding from the Vermont State Wildlife Grants Program, potential vernal pools will be identified using color infrared aerial photographs.
