“Vernal Pools NOT Mud Puddles” (Sunday May 26 1 to 3 pm)
Uplands Park “mud puddles” are actually vernal pools in the endangered Garry Oak Ecosystem. Many of the 31 rare plant species in Uplands Park are associated with wetland vernal pool ecology. Come discover these pools, learn how they are formed and discuss how you can protect them.
