Volunteer Training: Amphibian Migrations & Road Crossings
February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On rainy nights on the cusp of spring, an amphibian’s natural clock sends out the alarm that it’s time to migrate to vernal pools and begin the breeding process. Volunteers are needed to help these amphibians across dangerous road crossings, and collect data for the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
Become a real citizen scientist as you learn amphibian identification and are provided guidance on data collection methods and safety measures.
Participants are encouraged to arrive at 6:30pm for light refreshments and networking with other volunteers. For adults.
