Many salamanders breed in the water, and here’s your chance to see the larval aquatic stage of the endangered Eastern Tiger Salamander before it comes on land to live. You’ll also see some of our local frog tadpoles, as Andy Sabin, “Mr. Salamander,” wades into a freshwater pond and, using a seining net (a large two-person fishing net with weights at the lower edge and floats at the top), brings to the surface the pond-stages of these young animals, members of the class Amphibia.
*Reservations are required for all walks, workshops, and programs*
There is no charge for SoFo Members (unless otherwise stated); Non-members $7 per adult; $5 per child
Fees include admission to the museum on the day of the program
