Canterbury, Pomfret and Woodstock vernal pool surveys - volunteer opportunity

Paula Coughlin at the Connecticut Audubon Society Grassland Center at Pomfret coordinates local citizen science projects and is gearing up to continue vernal pool surveys during the spring 2010 vernal pool season. Once again, Paula will be documenting vernal pools in Canterbury and Pomfret. Grace Jacobson of the Woodstock Conservation Commission will serve as the volunteer coordinator for Woodstock. Field work will be on Friday and Saturday mornings, 9-noon. Field site locations and relevant information will be emailed to volunteers early in the week so that you can check your calendar and see if you plan to attend. Anyone is welcome to help out whenever it works for you, in any of the three towns. Please contact Paula to sign up: (860) 928-4948 (work) or (860) 974-0383 (home), or via email: pcoughlin@ctaudubon.org.

Upcoming surveys are planned for Friday, April 16, 9-noon, location to be announced, and Saturday, April 17, Hanover Road (on Scotland line) meet at Canterbury Public Library at 8:45.
