Home to populations of about 50 spotted salamanders and 50 wood frogs, Polomski Parcel is an upland habitat with a steadily occupied vernal pool to its west and two shallow vernal pools to its east. The smaller vernal pools only support amphibians in wet years. While the eastern side of this parcel is a red maple swamp with some invasive barberry and multiflora rose to the south, the southwestern side is covered with hickories and oaks. Roadside parking is available.
