Greetings from the Pond Team,

We’ve been some busy buckaroos…

Last Sunday Keith Bertone and I went to Lynn, MA to look at some wetlands with a group who is trying to save as much of those woods as possible. We did the field work for one pool.

On Tuesday Victoria Rolf and I did Snakes of New England and the World for a full house (80) at the Seekonk Public Library. Charlie and Theresa from Seekonk helped out with the show. It was really fun for everyone.

On Wednesday, Keith and I checked out some more pools. We did certification field work for two more.

Today we did a Snakes of New England and the World show for about 70 kids at Glen Urquhart School in Beverly Farms. Thanks to Wilhelmina, Victoria, Verdun, Christine and Mark. It was an excellent show in the greenhouse.

We still need help for Saturday April 22, somewhere around noonish or oneish after they come back from the woods cleanup, get fed, and hear a few tunes.

  • Earth Fest at Lynn Woods, Pennybrook Lane Entrance
  • Snakes of New England and the World – one hour live animal presentation

On Sunday, Keith, Nick Taomina, and I will do some vernal pond surveys in Essex.

And… Saturday April 29, 2017 from 9am – 3pm we will need help all day.

  • Green Energy and Sustainability Fair. O’Maley Middle School, Gloucester
  • We’ll be there with some sort of live animal display
  • We will likely be there by about 7:30 am for set up.
  • Breakdown when its over.

Also… Sunday April 30, 2017 come and walk for us in the Gloucester Pride Stride. Get your sign up sheets at We’ll be there with some sort of live animal display, weather permitting.

It’s a great way to have a fun day and support your favorite vernal pond team. We would love to see you out there. Email me at if you can help out with any of these activities.

Hope to see you soon, Rick

we only have one earth, save it

We are adding more activity photographs as we get them so check them out…
