The Land Conservancy of McHenry County is hosting a hike in Harvard in which participants can explore vernal pools, which are temporary bodies of water that house species such as frogs, fairy shrimp and toads.
Individuals and families are welcome to attend.
The hike will take place from 9:30 to 11 a.m. April 13.
The hike takes place on the property of a private residence in Harvard and costs $5 a person.
Vernal pools are a wetland habitat that reach their maximum depth in spring. Guests will be able to see the different species in the pool and learn more about them. Participants are encouraged to dress to get muddy and dirty.
