Salamander Crossing Brigade Volunteer Training

Tuesday, March 14, 2022 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. on Zoom.

As the earth thaws and spring rains drench New Hampshire, thousands of amphibians
migrate to vernal pools to breed. Sadly, many are killed when their journeys take them across
roads. Every year, the Harris Center trains community scientists to serve on Salamander
Crossing Brigades at amphibian road crossings throughout the Monadnock Region. These heroic
volunteers move migrating amphibians across roads by hand during one or more “Big Nights”
each spring, keeping count as they go. Attend this fun, information-packed volunteer training to
join their ranks – or simply to learn more about the remarkable spring amphibian migration.
