Early and busy 2017 salamander season. Stay tuned for updates.

The 2017 salamander season is already well underway in Steiner Woods. This has been the earliest start to the season since the drift fence study began in 1999 (the latest start to the season was just in 2015). So far we’ve had over 300 salamanders arrive at the pond. This is the most activity there has been since 2008. I am currently busy making evening visits to several ponds in the area for other projects, but look out for a walk announcement soon.
