Virtual Vernal Pools: An Earth Day Celebration

When: Wed., April 22, 12 p.m. 2020

Earth Day is the movement that launched a wave of environmental action, including landmark pieces of legislation such as the Clean Air, Clean Water, and, notably, Endangered Species Act. We are celebrating 50 years of Earth Day by diving virtually into vernal pools, a special habitat that hosts three endangered flower species only found in Sonoma County. ONLINE: Seasonal, ephemeral, and largely unknown to the average passersby, vernal pools are scattered across the Santa Rosa Plain and host an astonishing diversity of native flora and fauna. However, vernal pools are heavily impacted by development, and still need the advocacy and energy associated with the original Earth Day. Join us for this free, informative webinar and become a voice for vernal pools, a natural Sonoma County gem.
