On Thursday, May 13 from 7-8 p.m., the public is invited to the Springfield Town Library at 43 Main Street, to learn about spring amphibians from naturalist Jan Lambert.
Jan Lambert will explain the breeding behavior of New England's salamanders, frogs, and toads, and the various Citizen Science programs that are looking for help. She will show her close-up video clips of calling frogs and toads. These clips were gained over many hours of wading and crawling through the mud and water of the areas' wetlands. The audience may also experience a variety of live amphibians that Jan Lambert will bring.
The program is co-sponsored by the Museum, Springfield Library, Ascutney Mountain Audubon Society, and partially funded by the Wellborn Ecology Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. For information on the amphibian program, call the Springfield Library at 885-3108.
