Take a look at the vernal pools off of Beekman Road
Learn about the famous vernal pools the salamanders cross over to every spring!
June 12, 2023
Located on a path a little bit off of Beekman’s road, these vernal pools are home to the endangered salamanders. Every year, in order to preserve these salamanders, East Brunswick closes this road, to help these salamanders cross the road without worry of being run over by cars. If you want to check out these Vernal pools themselves, and maybe even find a salamander yourself, it’s just a short hike from your car!
