Amphibian Breeding

March 23, 2023 was the best night ever for viewing amphibian breeding. The spotted salamanders were moving into and out of the pools in numbers such that we five lucky people had to watch our steps!…

…and every 20 feet or so a flashlight revealed a cluster of animals swimming around in the leaves at the floor of each pool…

…many wood frogs swimming day and night (no picture, sorry).

…even a hatch of fairy shrimp (freshwater equivalent of brine shrimp) which I’ve only seen once before!

We bought this land in 1978 and have been its stewards since then. We want other people now and in the future to be able to enjoy the land as we have.
