Surveying for Salamanders
Wednesday, September 23,
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Each spring and fall, Harris Center staff, students, and citizen scientists monitor a series of study plots as part of SPARCnet, a collaborative research effort aimed at understanding the effects of climate change on redbacked salamanders (Plethodon cinereus). To see what it’s all about, join ecologists Brett Amy Thelen and Karen Seaver for an afternoon of monitoring. We’ll start with a brief introduction to redbacked salamander ecology and to our study methods, then head into the woods to survey for salamanders. No experience necessary!
3 to 5 p.m. in Hancock. Exact location information will be provided upon registration. . Please read our COVID-19 outing guidelines before registering to be sure this is the right event for you.
This program is now full. For more information, contact Brett via email.
