Vernal means spring and Ballard Park’s vernal pond is full of life this time of year! A Friends of Ballard Park educator will explain the unique aspects of vernal ponds and students will use nets and microscopes to take a closer look at what organisms are living in the water. The class is best suited for children 6 to 12 years old. Fee is $5 per student. Adults are free and encouraged to attend. Meet at 21 Hazard Road (quarry meadow entrance). Rain date is the following Monday. Register at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5V5DSG9 or call (401) 619-3377 to for more information.
