About the event

Hello Pipits!

This Sunday we will be going to search for salamanders, wildflowers and early spring migrant birds!

We will meet in the Spragues Road parking lot: https://goo.gl/maps/4XbUEWGBGx5ij87L8

We will meet at 9am.

Leader: Colleen Reilly, 289.795.6537. Feel free to call or text me if you need.

Possible species of salamanders we may see include: Spotted, Blue-Spotted, Eastern Red Backed, Four Toes, Jefferson's Salamanders, as well as Eastern Newts.

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.
