From 7pm until 8pm
At The comfort of your own home!
Coming to a wet roadway in spring near you – thousands and thousands of salamanders!
Why do salamanders (and frogs and toads) cross roads on wet rainy nights in spring? Where are they going? How far do they move? Who’s going where? Rick Van de Poll will lead this pre-migration workshop on New Hampshire’s salamanders that will introduce participants to the nine species in the region and discuss the life history, reproductive behavior, and migration strategies that have worked for several million years. We will focus on the three vernal pool salamanders that breed “explosively” in the spring (including the odd duck fall breeder to our south). All of the other six species can be found on the wet, warm roadways at night as well, so we’ll cover them too. Come prepared to get a firsthand look at these amazing amphibians!
This program will be presented via Zoom. It is free to use, but you will need to download the program to your computer or device ahead of time.
