Improperly managed livestock
Improperly managed livestock can be a detriment to wetlands and rivers. They can remove woody cover, compact soils, and cause erosion which increases sediment and nutrients entering the water system
Vernal pools are a vital breeding ground for wood frogs and salamanders that depend on seasonal wetlands for survival. These seasonal wetlands are often overlooked because they often dry up later in the season. For this reason, vernal pools need to be identified and protected to ensure the survival of these sensitive species.
