Salamander Seining and Some Frogs too, With Andy Sabin
Salamander Seining and Some Frogs too, With Andy Sabin: This program is for all ages.
Walk Leader: Andy Sabin, President, SOFO Board of Directors
Many salamanders breed in 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.
