Calling all kids ages 9 through 18 who care about wildlife! Try your hand at field research, develop your naturalist skills, meet real scientists, and do something to help the wild animals of our world by counting critters with the Harris Center. In May, join Harris Center naturalists Karen Seaver and Susie Spikol, and LAB GIRLS teacher Emily Wrubel, for an afternoon of salamander counting! Together, we’ll flip over special wooden boards at six different spots in the Harris Center woods in search of red-backed salamanders to count, all part of SPARCnet — a long-term study of this common woodland species. Be sure to check out our other Kids Count for Wildlife event in June, too.

4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Harris Center. Children under the age of 12 need to be accompanied by an interested family member. All others can attend without parental supervision. Space is limited, and registration is required.

For general information about Harris Center field trips, including questions about accessibility, see our Outings Information page. For more information about this particular event, please contact Susie.
