'Salamander Search to Celebrate Year of the Salamander' in Derby
In a release, the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection invites you to celebrate the “Year of the Salamander,” in an event from 3 to 4:30 p.m. April 26 at the Kellogg Environmental Center, Derby.
“Families and individuals are invited to participate in a Salamander Search,” in the streams and wetlands at Osborndale State Park, the release said.
“Come dressed for the weather and be prepared to get a little muddy. We suggest shoes that tie rather than slip-ons,” the release said.
Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation “proclaimed as the Year of the Salamander to raise awareness for salamander conservation. DEEP is participating in this effort by shining a spotlight on Connecticut’s 12 native salamander species throughout the year. “
“Other state and federal wildlife agencies, along with several conservation organizations, are also partnering with PARC to foster appreciation and understanding of salamanders. The Kellogg Center is hosting this program to help residents become aware of the salamanders in our area and their needs for survival.”
