On rainy nights in late winter and early spring, many salamanders and frogs travel long distances from their forest habitat to breed in small wetlands called “woodland pools.” Unfortunately, many are killed by vehicles when their migration pathways cross roads.
You can help! Columbia Land Conservancy is teaming up with NYSDEC Hudson River Estuary Program and Cornell University to work together and assist Hudson Valley communities with conservation planning to conserve important forests and wetlands, and the wildlife that use these critical habitats. You can help by participating in the Amphibian Migrations & Road Crossings (AM&RC) Project.
During this training volunteers will learn how to document and collect data, amphibian identification, and tips to assist amphibians safely across roads during their annual migration!
