Mather Field Preserve has an excellent website with great information about the plants and animals that live in and around vernal pools. If you want to prepare yourself or your students for what they might see here, this is the place to look.

Arrival to the WNC

If your show starts at 9:15, please arrive by 9:10 If your show starts at 11:20, please arrive by 11:15. Buses should unload and pick up at the bus loading zone in front of Woodcreek High School (just past the Aquatics Complex parking lot on Woodcreek Oaks Blvd). If you are arriving by private vehicle, you can park in the Aquatics Complex parking lot on the far right hand side. On the north side of the Aquatics Complex (the side facing Mahany Park) is a parking lot and bike trail. Go west on the bike trail until you get to a picnic area behind the Aquatics Complex (by the tennis courts). Docents will meet you at the picnic area and escort you out to the preserve. You can leave your lunch items at the picnic site. Only once in 7 years has anyone tampered with the lunches, so they should be safe. If another class is using the picnic tables, there are plenty of grassy knolls around the tennis courts on which to sit.
