SOFO: Spotted Salamander Search with Andy: Family/Children age 6 and older

Walk Leader: Andy Sabin, President, South Fork Natural History Museum Board of Directors

On this walk to one of our vernal ponds, we’ll be searching for the Spotted Salamander, one of our four native mole salamanders. This salamander is a beauty, with its shiny black body and bright yellow spots. It, like the Eastern Tiger Salamander and the Blue-spotted Salamander, as well as the early-autumn breeding Marbled Salamander, is called a mole salamander because it spends most of its time underground. Please bring a flashlight and wear boots, as late winter rains will make the ground soggy. This walk will take place only if there have been heavy rains.

Advance reservations are required. Programs free for SOFO members. Non-members: $15/ adult, $10/child 3-12 years, 2 and under free. Fees include free admission to the museum on the day of the event.

Please call 631-537-9735 for reservations and info about meeting place.
