Salamanders and Toads Galore!

The very last activity we did on Thursday was traveling to the Bousson Preserve owned by the college with Patti and April. We were there to find as many different types of salamanders and amphibians as possible.

Originally we stopped along the vernal ponds to try and find salamanders. We were not particularly successful and moved on to a small creek were our luck turned. There we found several types of salamanders including; a red-spotted newt a few northern spring salamanders as well as mountain duskies and two-lined salamanders. A few more amphibians were found on higher, dryer ground. Overall we had an extremely successful trip to Bousson Preserve.
