This Month: Frogs and Salamanders with John Foley
On cold and rainy spring nights, specialized amphibians, such as Wood Frogs and Spotted Salamanders, undertake their annual migration to small ephemeral woodland pools called vernal pools, where they will breed.

Join Great Hollow Nature Preserve naturalist John Foley for a presentation about the characteristics of vernal pools, how to identify them, and the natural history of the unique species that depend on them. We'll also discuss the conservation challenges facing these special habitats and how to adequately protect them from development and other threats.

John, the naturalist and preserve steward at Great Hollow Nature Preserve & Ecological Research Center in New Fairfield, CT, has been passionate about native turtles as well as amphibians all his life and has done much research on these essential and endangered creatures.

General meetings and programs are held the first Monday of every month, 7:00 PM, (unless otherwise noted).
