Amphibian Migrations and Road Crossings Project Virtual Training
Despite the unseasonably warm and rainy conditions last week, it appears there has not yet been a “big night” (or more) of amphibian migration. Often migration occurs in March, though if the conditions are right – thawed ground, rainy nights, and temperatures remaining above 40 degrees Fahrenheit – an earlier migration is always possible. Stay tuned for these conditions, and try to avoid any unnecessary driving, as many amphibians must cross roads to get from where they have been overwintering in the forest to the pools in which they mate and lay their eggs!
If you would like to find out how to help amphibians during this migration, the Amphibian Migrations and Road Crossings Project is providing one last virtual training opportunity on Tuesday, February 28th at 5:00 pm. Find out more and register here.
