Salamander Crossing Brigades volunteer training

Putnam Science Center - 127

Thursday, March 21, 2013 · 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

As the earth thaws and spring rains drench New Hampshire, thousands of salamanders, frogs, and toads make their way to vernal pools to breed. Many are killed when their journeys take them across busy roads. Each spring, Ashuelot Valley Environmental Observatory trains volunteers to serve on Salamander Crossing Brigades at amphibian road crossings throughout the Monadnock Region. These heroic volunteers count migrating amphibians and safely usher the animals across roads during one or more “Big Nights.” To join the ranks of the Salamander Crossing Brigades, attend either this volunteer training at KSC or the Saturday morning training at the Harris Center for Conservation Education on March 23. (No need to attend both.)

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and the Keene State College School of Sciences. For more information, contact Brett Amy Thelen at or (603) 358-2065.
