In search of frogs and salamanders

St. Luke’s environmental science teacher David Havens will lead the Norwalk River Watershed Association’s annual amphibian walk on Sunday, April 3, at 1, in Merwin Meadows.

A member of the association’s board, Havens will begin with a short introduction on amphibians and how to spot them, followed by a  woodland hike along the Norwalk River to visit vernal pools coming to life with salamanders, newts, frogs and toads. Participants may discover some of the many species in this area, search for eggs and tadpoles, and learn about amphibian development.

Participants should meet at the hiking trail entrance off the parking lot at Merwin Meadows, at the end of Lovers Lane. Tall, waterproof boots are suggested. All ages are welcome to this free event, which is co-sponsored by the Wilton Garden Club and the watershed association.

For information, or to register for the walk, email or  call 1-877-NRWA-INFO (877-679-2463).
