Peterborough Zoo


This is an annual PFN evening trip to look for migrating salamanders and egg masses in their breeding pools.  This inventory event will be at the Ingleton-Wells property of the Kawartha Land Trust (KLT).  The event will commence with the checking of pools for egg masses of Spotted and Blue-spotted Salamanders.  We will then record the frog species calling and check the roadways for migrating salamanders.  Dusk calling birds will also be recorded.  The trip will be led by Martin Parker.

Meet at 6:00 p.m. in the Parking Lot of Peterborough Zoo.

After rendezvousing at the zoo we will travel to the Inglelton-Wells property on the northwestern shore of Stoney Lake.   Wear clothes forecast for the weather, water-proof footwear, bring a head lamp or flashlight, and evening snack or packed supper.  It is anticipated the trip will return to the City around 11 p.m



Accessibility:  Moderate with walking around woodland pond and return in the dark
