Join us and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist, Becky Rosamond, for a morning dedicated to the amazing amphibians that dwell in our forests, streams, and wetlands!

Participants will see several species of Mississippi's native salamanders and learn about the fascinating life histories of these secretive creatures. Weather permitting, we'll be heading out to view up-close the masses of salamander eggs peppering our seasonal ponds. If you're not the type to hang out on the sidelines, wear an old pair of shoes or boots and help us dip net our ponds for young, swimming salamanders.

    Last year for this event, it was snowing and spitting sleet - today it got to 70 degrees... I think everyone had a great time and we found lots of critters in the vernal pools. Thanks to everyone for coming out and acting like a kid...

    Sent request for myself and 8yr old to attend; waiting for response before posting attendance...my son is so excited. He likes chasing and looking at the salamanders at SP and told me he's interested in learning all the scientific things about them. Lol. I hope they have room for us!
