About the event
This Sunday we will be going to search for salamanders, and our awesome naturalist friend Chris Cheatle is going to try to accompany us!
We will meet in the Spragues Road parking lot: https://goo.gl/maps/4XbUEWGBGx5ij87L8
We will meet at 9am.
It may be challenging, or not possible, to fit 20 cars into the parking lot here, and I don't believe roadside parking is allowed on Spragues Road. I suggest folks arrange to car pool - feel free to contact me if you are interested in carpooling, and I will share your contacts with everyone else who has contacted me in this regard.
My phone number is 289.795.6537. Feel free to call or text me if you need.
Chris shared that the possible species of salamanders we may see include: Spotted, Blue-Spotted, Eastern Red Backed, Four Toes, Jefferson's Salamanders, as well as Eastern Newts.
As always, we will keep our eyes and ears peeled for the early spring migrant birds that will have begun filtering in from the south.
Sudden Regional Forest comprises a variety of site types and contains several significant species of flora and fauna. Moraines provide a series of hills and valleys with small ponds and vernal pools being found in the valleys and mixed hardwood forests on the hillsides and hilltops. There are several conifer plantations which are well established and which provide habitat for a variety of bird species. There is a well developed network of trails that covers the entire forest and is well used by recreational walkers and educational groups. There are a number of sites throughout Sudden Regional Forest that support populations of salamanders, including the Jefferson complex and Four-toed salamander. Much of the natural forest type is Carolinian forest and includes populations of red oak, which are gradually being replaced by sugar maples. There is a well developed trail system throughout Sudden Regional Forest including a boardwalk through the wetland.
Washrooms: there are none at this location.
Looking forward to seeing everyone who can attend!
