Vernal Pond Walk on March 30th

Free program for adults and families with children ages eight and up. Vernal ponds, unique temporary wetlands, are the breeding grounds for a number of amphibians, like frogs and salamanders, 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. Meet at the Park Office. Program runs from 10:30 AM to 12:00 noon on March 30, 2019 at High Point State Park. For more information email highpointprograms@dep.nj.gov or call 973-875-1471.
