Vernal Pond Walk hosted by Manchester Essex Conservation Trust.
Vernal Pool Exploration - Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team Director Rick Roth will explore a vernal pool not far down the path off Andrews St in Essex. We’ll be looking for frogs, salamanders, and shrimp along with whatever else we find in the ponds and woods on the path. There are over 200 vernal ponds on Cape Ann alone so with a little knowledge from Rick you’ll be ready to explore other ponds on your own.
This will be a family-friendly event perfect for children and adults of all ages! Once at the vernal pool, you will be able to venture around the edges and look for a variety of fascinating egg masses and organisms under Rick's direction.
Sunday, 3-5PM, meet on Andrews St, off Southern Av, in Essex.

The Motif No.1 Day Festival celebrates the Arts in Rockport. And all of it centers around the fishing shack-artist’s studio-tourist attraction that started it all: an old building right on one of Rockport’s historic wharves that was painted so often by artists at the turn of the last century that it was given the nickname Motif No.1 by Lester Hornby, a well know artist and instructor of the period.
Film, poetry, dance, music, and art-making activities are all a part of the festival, as well as historical presentations and a 5k Road Race and Fun Run, with proceeds to benefit Rockport Public Schools’ wellness initiatives.
Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team and Kestrel Education Adventures are teaming up to hold our notorious Yard Sale.
This is a fundraiser to support our nonprofit efforts. Your donations are tax deductible.
Please participate by donating, shopping, helping at the event, and bringing your friends along to buy lot of stuff.
We have a good time and hope you join in the fun. It's all for a good cause and maybe you can find a hidden treasure.
