Did you know that the mountain is also home to the highest concentration of vernal pools in the state and is home to 3 threatened and endangered species? On this walk we will explore nearby vernal pools, ephemeral streams and wetlands to learn about seasonal life cycles, critical habitats, and the difference between facultative and obligate species.
