June 6--Amphibian Amble with Carrie Szwed. Join Carrie Szwed, Director of Education, on a jaunt to find those sleek and slimy creatures we call amphibians. We'll look under rocks and boards, trudge through mud, and even end up ankle-deep in water armed with dip nets in order to reveal as many frogs, toads, and salamanders, as well as their eggs, as we can. After identifying and marveling at these cool critters with as minimal contact as possible, all amphibians will be safely returned to their hiding spots. Wear long pants and shoes that you don't mind getting muddy! Meet in the Ceder Room for a brief introduction on our native amphibian species before we head out on the property. 1:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M., A. B. Ceder Room. FREE.
