My journey Monday evening took me to the pool located on the 3rd of Kennebunk Town Hall. There was no lifeguard on duty but there were about 20 people monitoring, to include the “pool instructor.”
O.K., so the pool was a “Vernal Pool.” What is that you ask? They are unique wetland habitats that often times are home for reptiles and amphibians like salamanders, wood frogs, green frogs and other types of creatures. Why does a town manager need to know about these pools? Well the answer is provided in a multiple choice format: a) I did not like what was being served for dinner at home, b) The Patriots already played (and won) on Sunday c) Vernal Pools can be a challenge for land developers so the Town wants to identify ways to aid builders while still protecting our natural resources.
Great presentation and I still saw most of the Red Sox game when I got home! Thanks to Ellen Wolf and the Conservation Commission for making the night memorable.
