Searching for Lead-backed Salamanders: This program is for adults, teens, and children ages 6 and older.
Walk Leader: Jake Kushner, SOFO Environmental Educator and Reptile & Amphibian Specialist.
Join Jake for a chance to learn about the secret life of the Eastern Red-backed Salamander. Although this salamander species is one of the most abundant vertebrates in forest habitats throughout the Northeast, they are rarely spotted on your average walk through the woods. These salamanders are fossorial, spending the majority of their time underground. As we roll logs and stones searching for these fascinating critters, we’ll learn about their life underground, as well as their importance in the forest ecosystems. Dress for wet/muddy conditions.
There is a $15 fee for Adults and $10 fee for children for this program. Members are free.
