Evergreen Vernal Pools and Wildflowers **FULL – Waitlist Available**

This event is full, please contact Matt Benotsch for the waitlist, mbenotsch@greenbeltlandtrust.org

 

Join Greenbelt staff on an exploration of the vernal pools and wildflower bloom at our Evergreen property outside of Philomath. Protected in 2009, this 221 acres holds wetlands, remnant prairie, ash swales, and has seen extensive restoration including creation of vernal pools.

 

Vernal pools are shallow depressions in wetlands or on other slow to drain soils that fill up with water in the fall and winter and dry up completely in the summer. They are home to many plant and animal species, and important habitat for migrating birds looking for a snack along their journey.
