Walk Leader: Andy Sabin, South Fork Natural History Museum Board President.
On this walk to one of our vernal ponds, we’ll be searching for the Spotted Salamander, one of our four native mole salamanders. This salamander is a beauty with its shiny black body and bright yellow spots. It, like the Eastern Tiger and the Blue-spotted Salamander, as well as the early-autumn breeding Marbled Salamander, is called a mole salamander because it spends most of its time underground. Please bring a flashlight and wear boots, as late winter rains will make the ground soggy. This walk will take place only after heavy rains.
Reservations are required for all events. Participants must call (631) 537-9735 for reservations and information about meeting places.
