Night of Salamanders and Frogs
April 24 @ 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM
This annual PFN evening trip is to look for migrating salamanders and their egg masses in breeding pools. This inventory event will be at the Ingleton-Wells property of the Kawartha Land Trust. We will start by checking the pools in daylight for the eggs of Wood Frogs, Spotted and Blue Spotted salamanders and for some of the many organisms that live and breed in these unique woodland pools. We will also be listening for calling frogs and owls. The trip is jointly led by Thomas Unrau of Kawartha Land Trust, Martin Parker and Sue Paradisis.
This is an evening outing so bring a flash light or head lamp as we will be returning from the pools in the dark. After meeting at the zoo, we will travel to the Ingleton-Wells property on the northwestern part of Stoney Lake. For those wishing to meet us there at 7:00 p.m., the address is 105 Reid’s Road. Wear clothes suitable to the weather forecast and bring water-proof footwear. It is anticipated that we will return to the city around 11:00 p.m.
Accessibility: Moderate with walking around woodland ponds and returning in the dark.
