Amphibian Road Survey!

Come and be Citizen Scientists for an evening as we count amphibians on their fall migration.  As you may know, roads near wetlands can be a real threat to amphibian species. Collecting this data can help to determine where amphibian ‘underpasses’ should be placed underneath roads so the little critters are less likely to be squashed by passing cars.

Location: Normarel Marsh in Lantzville (Sywash Ridge Road, Lantzville).

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
