Big Night is coming, and we’re looking for volunteers!

Each spring frogs and salamanders return to their woodland pools in large numbers to lay eggs.  They face many hazards on their journey, and roads are one of their biggest threats.  You can help by volunteering to be an amphibian crossing guard.winnikee land 2014

Volunteers are called up on the first wet night above 40° to trek out with flashlights to help frogs and salamanders cross the street.  This is a great family activity, and can take as much or as little time as you’d like – even 15 minutes helps!  For more information and to sign up for our BIG NIGHT Alert,

contact Shannon Duerr at Winnakee Land or 845-876-4213.
