It’s not often one purchase can benefit three populations, but that’s what the Brewster Conservation Trust has done in a few acres off Main Street. This small area preserves a vernal pool, gives wildlife a place of respite and provides a living science lab for students of the Eddy Elementary School.
Since vernal pools have no fish, eggs of salamanders and frogs depend on their safety. Students learn not only about the plants and animals that depend on wetlands but also about how living things depend on each other, that all nature is connected.
