NOTE: This event was originally scheduled for March 14, but was postponed to Tuesday, March 21 due to widespread power outages associated with the big winter storm on March 14.
As the earth thaws and spring rains drench New Hampshire, thousands of amphibians migrate to vernal pools and other wetlands to breed. Sadly, many are killed when their journeys take them across roads. Every year, the Harris Center trains community scientists to serve on Salamander Crossing Brigades at amphibian road crossings throughout the Monadnock Region. These heroic volunteers move migrating amphibians across roads by hand during one or more “Big Nights” each spring, keeping count as they go. Attend this fun, information-packed volunteer training to join their ranks – or simply to learn more about the remarkable spring amphibian migration.
7 to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom. To get the login details, please register here. Closed captioning will be available. For more information, please see our Salamander Crossing Brigade FAQ or contact Brett Amy Thelen.
