Did you know that in the 1970's there was only one eagle nest left in NJ? Today, there are over 200 pairs being monitored. Join us to learn about NJ Eagle recovery project, current monitoring techniques, and their amazing comeback.

Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey (CWF) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of New Jersey’s endangered and threatened wildlife and the habitats they depend on. We carry out our mission by researching and managing rare animal species, restoring habitat, educating New Jersey’s residents, and engaging volunteers in our conservation projects. Since the early 1990’s, CWF scientists and educators have helped conserve and protect a variety of at-risk species of wildlife in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the nation.

Vernal Pool Walk - Members Only!

 

Time & Place

7:00-8:00pm
Waterloo Historical Village, Waterloo Road, Byram NJ

event thumbnail

When the first early spring rains come, thousands of salamanders, frogs, and toads emerge from their winter slumber. They make short, stealthy migrations through the forest to breed and lay their eggs in vernal pools.

We’ll take a flat ¼-mile walk to a vernal pool (½ mile round-trip) to explore an ecosystem that most people will never see! Guaranteed to be blasted by the songs of Spring Peepers and to discover salamander eggs, fairy shrimp, and other unique creatures as evening sets in. Learn how locals are helping protect Waterloo’s amphibian and experience the work CWF biologists do every day!

The experience is free for CWF members only and family-friendly. Participants must register. Please RSVP to Liz Silvernail at liz.silvernail@conservewildlifenj.org.

Bring your own flashlight and wear clean rubber boots! We will be exploring along the edge of the pool- so dress to stay dry and warm! Sun will set around 8:00 pm, so the woods will be dark on our way out.
