Backyard amphibians talk with ACT May 11

FRANCONIA  –Learn more about the amphibians of our wetlands, backyards and woodlands at a talk hosted by Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) at Franconia Town Hall on Friday May 11th at 6:30 p.m.  ACT’s consulting wildlife biologist and ecologist, Jesse Mohr, will lead the conversation covering a range of amphibians in our region. We’ll talk about why they’re important, where to find them, and things you can do to help them survive and thrive!

Did you know some of amphibian species have been around since the days of the dinosaurs?  Some are among the most common animals in the state, and some are the rarest. You’ll learn which salamanders, toads, and frogs fall into these categories and where to look or listen for them.

Come join the conversation and learn something new about our region’s amazing amphibians. It’s free and open to the public and donations are gladly accepted. The program is geared toward adults, but all are welcome. Save your spot and help us plan accordingly by pre-registering at www.aconservationtrust.org/education-events. Everyone who pre-registers will be in a drawing for a cool prize!
