"Wild" Night Program:
Searching for Creatures on Dugger Mountain

A vernal pond is a special type of wetland that remains dry for only a portion of the year. The result? No fish when dry. A wide variety of animals like insects, frogs, crustaceans, and salamanders rely on these ponds as breeding grounds.

Join JSU's Dr. George Cline and National Forest Ranger Jeff Gardner as they explore the web of life supported in these temporary wetlands near Dugger Mountain. Participants who want to get "swampy" should bring waders.

Pre-registration is required. Transportation will be provided from JSU for a limited number of early registrants. CEUs are available for teachers upon request.
