Earth Day – Salamander Soiree
April 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Earth Day! What better way to celebrate our wonderful planet than by searching for slimy amphibians? The wonderful world of salamanders will be on display as Park Ranger Kevin Bischof leads a hike to different types of salamander habitat in search of these small, elusive amphibians. Meet at the Holly Discovery Trail parking area and come prepared to journey through woodlands, seeps, streams and pools. Wear appropriate footwear as some of these areas may be a little muddy. The hike will begin promptly at 1 p.m.
