Program Leader: Eleni Nikolopoulos, South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) Nature Educator
During the warm months of summer and even early autumn, we can find bullfrogs leaping into ponds and salamanders slithering under logs but, as the summer drifts away and autumn is upon us, our native amphibians are preparing for their winter slumber. Join us for a look into the how and why of amphibian hibernation. Each species is unique in their technique at finding and acquiring an appropriate hibernation location. We will learn some fun facts about our local amphibian friends, meet a few of SoFo’s resident salamanders, toads, and frogs, and then even go out and scout for some optimal hibernation spots in Vineyard Field. We might even pretend we are frogs looking for a great place to spend the winter!
