Attn: hike rescheduled due to weather again. Please register at link below to get updates for reschedule. Currently, the plan is next Friday. Sorry but the little buggers aren't showing their faces just yet.
The Lytle Creek League of Conservators/No Child Left Indoors organization is sponsoring a Salamander Migration Hike. In deference to the predictable unpredictability of nature's timing and in order to make sure we have the best chance to actually see them migrating to their breeding ponds we may hike Friday February 24, March 2 or March 9. The actual hike date will be determined on the Wednesday before the hike date. Together we will search for salamanders as they awaken from hibernation and move toward their breeding ponds. There is no cost for this event and no experience is necessary. This is an adventure for the entire family. Please dress for the weather - boots and a flashlight are essential. Remember, salamanders prefer to move in the rain, so be prepared for muddy fun! Pre-registration is required. To register go to greenalliancecc.com or call Lori Williams, [masked].U.S. Army
Simmie, the organizer for the Birders Meetup posted this and sent it out to us as well hoping we would join in for the fun. I think it sounds great. Please read the details as the date and time may change depending on the conditions.
I suggest we meet and carpool/caravan at some spot. Anyone with a suggestion feel free to post in comments and I will set up something more formal.
Due to the type of hike, I would say kids welcome but dogs not so much. I don't think we'd see too many salamanders with the likes of Jodi and Jeter chasing them away.
