Your area is ahead of mine, I still have snow covering where future vernal pools will be. But I am looking for them, and waiting to hear the peepers! Rebecca Reply I was surprised, myself, at the suddenly spring woods. It seems we’ve been under snow for sooooo long! I keep looking, both up and down, it will just take a bit more time, and some good warm weather! The streams are full of snow melt so we must be getting close. Any day now!! Yes!
