About the Event

As the earth thaws and spring rains drench New Hampshire, thousands of amphibians migrate to vernal pools and other wetlands to breed. Sadly, many are killed when their journeys take them across roads. Every year, the Harris Center trains community scientists to serve on Salamander Crossing Brigades at amphibian road crossings throughout the Monadnock Region. These heroic volunteers move migrating amphibians across roads by hand during one or more “Big Nights” each spring, keeping count as they go. Attend this fun, information-packed volunteer training to join their ranks – or simply to learn more about the remarkable spring amphibian migration.

7 to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom. Closed captioning will be available. For information see harriscenter.org/salamander-crossing-brigades/faq or contact Brett Amy Thelen at thelen@harriscenter.org.

This event will be recorded. To ensure access to the recording please register for this event, even if you cannot attend live.
