Due to the rapid loss of vernal pools, and the insufficient information shared in public, a medium to encourage participation and to enhance collaboration of the vernal pool community has become very important. In order to create such a medium, this project created a web application with the back-end database by using Ruby on Rails framework and MySQL. It also utilized Ajax technology to create an interactive environment for the users. The accomplishment of this project is great service to the vernal pool community. The created application allows the community to contribute and to share their resources, and lets the participants to search and to learn more about vernal pools.
