Do you love salamanders? Are you interested in helping increase salamander survival in their breeding season?

Every year, with the first warm rains of the spring, Spotted Salamanders participate in a mass migration from their woodland homes to their water breeding sites. This involves crossing many roads and often results in fatalities due to cars and traffic. Each year, we trainĀ Salamander Migration Volunteers to monitor the Spotted Salamander migration and act as crossing guards for these animals! To become a volunteer,Ā you must attend thisĀ full training and orientation to the program,Ā sign up for a minimum of three nights during the migration window (mid-Februrary to mid-March) to be on-call for assisting with a potential migration event, andĀ be willing to walk up to two miles on a flat road during rainy evenings.
