Then everybody gathered nets and rubber boots and we walked up the road and into the woods to one of the vernal pools. There Lauren described what we were looking for and people searched and found wood frog egg masses, spotted salamander egg masses and a wood frog, along with some insect life. However, no spotted salamanders were found. The group got to see and touch the egg masses and after everything was finished, all the egg masses and animals were returned to their previous locations in the pool, so they could continue their development.
