AT THE NORTH BRANCH NATURE CENTER (NBNC)
Every spring, the first steady, warm rain brings the migration of thousands of spotted salamanders to ponds and pools, often across busy roads. Salamander Sky features a mother and daughter who go out on a rainy night to help the salamanders cross the road safely. This dramatic, full-color, picture book introduces the reader to the elusive spotted salamander and the perilous nighttime journey that takes place every spring. Amphibians worldwide desperately need protection. This book is a valuable tool for getting children engaged in conservation. At this event you'll also learn how to get involved in amphibian monitoring work at NBNC and the Vermont Center for Ecostudies.
