Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator and Vanessa Pagano, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Environmental Educator, on a hike for adults and teens to look for salamanders, frogs, and their eggs at vernal pools. Early spring is the ideal time to find amphibians, as this is their breeding season. Attendees will have the opportunity to be citizen scientists and amphibian scientists, known as herpetologists. They’ll learn how to complete amphibian monitoring forms, as well as where to find and submit them.Please bring shoes you don’t mind getting wet or dirty.
