Station 10 - Vernal Pond & Riparian Area

A riparian zone or riparian area is the interface between land and a river or stream. Riparian zones are significant in ecology, environmental management, and civil engineering because of their role in soil conservation, their habitat biodiversity, and the influence they have on local animals and aquatic ecosystems, including grassland, woodland, wetland or even non-vegetative.

The vernal (or seasonal) pond was constructed as part of an Eagle Scout project to provide additional habitat during the wet season.
