On Sun­day, April 22, at 6 p.m., the Dreibel­bis Farm His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety will host a Spring Peeper and Wet­lands Walk at the His­toric Dreibel­bis Farm in Vir­ginville.

The event fea­tures a very spe­cial lo­ca­tion on the farm— the Ver­nal Pool in our wet­lands area near the Maiden Creek. Nat­u­ral­ist– guide, Amy Lang­man will in­tro­duce the real stars of the evening—tiny singing frogs called Spring Peep­ers.

Along with deer, spot­ted sala­man­ders, wood frogs, bull frogs, and snap­ping tur­tles, the ver­nal pool is home to thou­sands of the tiny peep­ers. Be­cause this is a “walk on the wild side” of the his­toric farm, we ask that par­tic­i­pants wear wa­ter­proof boots for an­kle deep mud & wa­ter.

The event is free to the pub­lic and will be held rain or shine. Park­ing is on-site and mone­tary do­na­tions will be grate­fully ac­cepted. The His­toric Dreibel­bis Farm is lo­cated on Route 143 south of the vil­lage of Vir­ginville. Street Ad­dress for GPS: 356 Hard Hill Road, Ham­burg, PA.

The Spring Peeper and Wet­lands Walk is an en­vi­ron­men­tal/ed­u­ca­tional event hosted by the DFHS, to ful­fill their mis­sion to pre­serve and pro­tect the his­toric Dreibel­bis farm and to make it avail­able to the pub­lic. The fifth an­nual Wild­flower Walk will be later in Spring, and the sev­enth an­nual His­toric Farm Fes­ti­val will be held on Aug. 25.
