It is coming up on vernal pool season! Wood frogs, Spotted Salamanders, Blue Spotted Salamanders, and Fairy Shrimp are migrating from their winter burrows to breed in these seasonal pools. If you think you have a vernal pool on your property and are planning any sort of development, contact Atlantic Environmental to help with project planning and determine if the vernal pool may be regulated by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection or Army Corps of Engineers. Surveys of pools should begin now in Southern Maine and in the next couple of weeks for Midcoast Maine and North.
