Watch: Why Did the Amphibian Cross the Road?

A small amphibianIn late March or early April, after the ground starts to thaw, species like spotted salamander and wood frog will emerge from underground shelters in the forest and walk overland to breed in woodland pools - small, temporary wetlands found in forests. During early spring rains when evening temperatures are above 40 degrees, these amphibians migrate to breeding pools by the hundreds, if not thousands. When these migratory pathways cross roads, Hudson Valley volunteers help them cross safely and record their observations. Learn how by attending an Amphibian Migration & Road Crossing volunteer workshop.
