You can save Mendham for Future Generations
Vernal Pool Investigation – North Branch of Raritan Headwaters/King’s Shopping Center
The MAPC has teamed with the Raritan Headwaters Association to identify and research vernal pools in Open Space in the Mendhams. Vernal pools are an important element to to clean our headwaters and help regulate water flow and keep our rivers and streams healthy. Important and rare species also exist in these ephemeral pools, typically holding water for two months and are the home of rare endangered species such as the blue-spotted salamander. The first area being researched is the Loop Trail open space behind the King’s Shopping Center given the potential for disturbance of this area by the newly proposed apartment complex.
