Bronte Creek Provincial Park - little known facts

No Fish-ing.

Oakville, Ontario L6M, Canada

Created By: Bronte Creek Provincial Park


Little Known Fact: This pond dries up around mid-August - depending on how rainy the summer has been. The animals that call this pond home will either travel to another pond or wet area or bury themselves into the mud and wait for the pond to fill up. Ponds like this are called vernal pools/ ponds or ephemeral pools.

Because it dries up each year, this pond is not a suitable habitat for fish. It is however perfect for amphibians! Frogs, toads and salamanders use this pond as an important breeding area where their larvae can thrive without threat from one of their major predators.
