Vernal Pond Walk at High Point State Park on March 24

Vernal ponds, unique temporary wetlands, are the breeding grounds for a number of amphibians and other aquatic species. Join us for a short introduction at the Park Office, and then we’ll travel to a handful of High Point’s ponds for a first-hand look at these fascinating habitats. This program will include both walking (a mile or less) and driving (approximately five miles). We will also be walking off-trail so sturdy mud-resistant shoes are recommended. Adults and children ages eight and up. The program is free and runs from 10:30 AM to noon. Please email highpointprograms@dep.nj.gov or call 973-875-1471 to confirm date and time.
