When Will the Amphibians Migrate? Here's Our Best Guess.

Spring amphibian migrations are spurred by a combination of thawed ground, warm nighttime temperatures (above 40°F), and wet weather — though temperature fluctuations and varying snow depth mean that Big Night often occurs at different times in different places. Spring weather in New England is notoriously fickle, so check back often for the most up-to-date forecast!

NOTE: 2021 forecasts will commence in mid-to late March. Check out last year’s salamander forecasts to get a sense of what’s to come, and check back again once the snow has started to melt for this year’s prognostications!
