Salamander Seining

When: 05/26/2018, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The South Fork Natural History Museum invites families and children to enjoy “Andy’s Annual Salamander Seining… And Some Frogs Too” at 10 AM. Many salamanders breed in water, and here’s a chance to see the larval aquatic stage of the endangered Eastern Tiger Salamander before it comes on land to live. You’ll also see some local frog tadpoles as Andy Sabin, “Mr. Salamander,” wades into a freshwater pond and, using a seining net (a large two-person fishing net with weights at the lower edge and floats at the top), brings to the surface the pond-stages of these young animals, members of the Class Amphibia.
