Mother's Day Frog & Salamander Walk

Event date and time
May 12, 2019 - 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM

It's a great time of year to find frogs and salamanders! Join us for a fun Mother's Day outing at SLU Environmental Studies Department's Living Lab site to on Hwy 68 to explore the secret world of amphibians. Guest naturalist Kristine Hoffmann will lead the group to the vernal pools at the site in search of spring amphibians that come to these special, temporary pools to breed, like wood frogs and spotted salamanders.

Kris is an amphibian and reptile conservation biologist, and visiting professor of biology at St. Lawrence University. This event is free, open to all ages, and no experience is necessary. Please bring comfortable outdoor clothing that can get wet, closed-toe shoes, and a spirit for adventure!

The SLU Living Lab is located at 2383 Hwy 68 less than a mile from the village of Canton. If you are driving from Canton, look for a white house on the right shortly after the SLU Horse Barns. Driving west on Hwy 68 look for a driveway past Brewer Rd on the left. The drive is marked by a sign reading "ESL: Environmentally Sustainable Landscape".
