April 3, 2009
This evening marked one of the first amphibian movements of the year in central Vermont and a continuation of movements throughout the state. Spotted Salamanders (pictured right), Wood Frogs, and Spring Peepers were found crossing the roads on their annual migration to breeding pools. More can be learned about this phenomenon by visiting NBNC's Amphibian Monitoring Program.
We've also had a barrage of media coverage this spring. Over 100 news outlets from Alaska to Florida, and beyond, have picked up an Associated Press story about the crossing site in New Haven, VT.
