Live Blogging from the Lannon

Cigar and Rum Cruise on the Lannon

Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team Update


We had a nice time at Summerfaire at the UU Church in Rockport on Saturday. Great weather, lots of people interested in our snakes. And courageous volunteers: John Gallagher, Colleen Anderson and Caroline from Petco. Thank you. And Terri Desmaris for inviting us.

We need some volunteers for Thursday. The Farmer’s Market is always a fun gig and the weather is supposed to be very nice. So… come over, help with our exhibit and check out the market.
Thursday July 17, 2014 3-6pm (I think)
Cape Ann Farmer’s Market, Stage Fort Park, Gloucester
We’ll be there with a bunch of snakes and the good people from Art Haven will lead the Kid’s Activity- painting wooden snakes.

Saturday July 19, 2014 1-3pm
Petco Reptile Rally at Petco at Gloucester Crossing
We’ll be there with a few snakes. Should be fun.

And then…
Saturday July 26, 2014 Time TBA
Snakes of New England and the World- 1 hour live animal presentation.
Sawyer Free Library, 2 Dale Ave., Gloucester MA

Meanwhile… this really cool vernal pond thing is about to take place, likely in the next week or two. The emergence of newly metamorphosed wood frogs. They look just like the adults except tiny. Like 1/2 inch. We’ll be doing a daytime field trip to see these guys soon. Nick Taormina is scouting the pond to see just when they start hopping. Keep watching your CAVPT emails for final details on this exciting outing. And don’t forget to volunteer.

Thanks, Rick
