Salamander Crossing Brigades Workshop in Keene
Friday, March 22,
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
As the earth thaws and spring rains drench New Hampshire, thousands of amphibians migrate to vernal pools to breed. Many are killed when their journeys take them across roads. Every year, we train citizen 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. To join the ranks – or simply to learn more about the remarkable spring amphibian migration – join us for this fun, informative, indoor volunteer training.
7 to 9 p.m. in the Putnam Science Center at Keene State College (Room 101). For more information, please contact Brett Amy Thelen at (603) 358-2065 or by email.
Cosponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and Keene State College.
