Organization Description: The Vernal Pool Association is an environmental project of Reading Memorial High School, Reading, Massachusetts. Our goal is to encourage the appreciation, protection, and interdisciplinary study of vernal pools, particularly by students. To meet this objective, we produce educational materials, present workshops and talks, and interact with educators and students both in person and through the Internet. We are actively involved with state, federal and private environmental protection and education agencies and organizations. This website, “The Vernal Pool”, is our on-line effort at education and outreach.
