James Anderson is the naturalist for the Marion County Park District. His talk and walk will focus on the various vernal pools found at both the Terradise Nature Center and Preserve. These pools typically dry up during the late summer and early fall, but host some fascinating small creatures and plants the rest of the year.
A portion of this program will include visiting the vernal pools at the Terradise Nature Preserve. Our guests are encouraged to wear boots or old shoes as it will be muddy!
