Jamestown, NY – You and the child(ren) in your life can learn about “Salamanders and Frogs” at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday morning, March 11. The program is for children aged three to eight and their favorite grownups.
March is the month when the living things that have been dormant all winter begin to awaken.
With the first warm rain of spring, roots, shoots, frogs and salamanders start to move. These amphibians emerge from their winter burrows and begin moving to their spring pools to lay eggs.
You will learn about different kinds of salamanders and early frogs, what they need, and -- if the rain has already come -- look at some eggs, tadpoles and maybe even adults. After the lesson you will go for a hike and then come in for a snack and a craft.
The 10 to 11:30 a.m. program runs rain or shine, and going outside is the most important part, so plan to come dressed for the weather.
