Come join us for a unique citizen science opportunity! Sleuthing for salamanders is back! A long-term research study looking at amphibian populations is in its third year at the Siuslaw Model Forest. The community monitoring event will be held Thursday April 25th. Participants will meet at the ponds for a brief training on research methods and salamander identification. Teams will then head out into the woods to search for amphibians, led by Dr. Rebecca Pinder of Columbia-Greene Community College and CCE educators. Siuslaw Model Forest has remarkable salamander diversity and April evenings are the best time to see them! Join us for what is sure to be a fun experience with science in the woods!

Presented by: Dr. Rebecca Pinder and Audrey Kropp
