Salamander Crossing Brigades Workshop
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 busy roads. Every year, the Harris Center for Conservation Education trains 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 (Room 101). For more information, please contact Brett Amy Thelen at (603) 358-2065 or email@example.com.
Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, the Monadnock Conservancy, and the KSC Film Society.
