WOW Thanks: Allen Lloyd

For “In Search of the Spotted Salamander”

 Spotted and dusky salamanders were found and admired last Sunday, February 24. Other animals made our acquaintance, including a number of frogs and a very friendly box turtle. Inspections were made of the local beaver’s handiwork: a very busy one, we all agreed! Thank you Allen Lloyd for another great outing in our local wetlands! Following the warm rains recently, salamanders have been busy migrating to the vernal ponds near them to mate and lay their eggs. We met up with them as they were resting from this great feat.
