Protecting Breeding Turtles & Amphibians Virtual Presentation
April is a busy month for toads, frogs, turtles, and other little critters to be looking for mates and appropriate spots to lay their eggs for the spring season! Unfortunately for them, this can be a dangerous adventure to undertake. In fact, during the spring, as many as 26% of little amphibians get hit by cars as they try to cross the roads looking for nesting & mating sites.
During this “Protecting Breeding Turtles & Amphibians” presentation, we’ll discover some local reptile & amphibian species (including the American Toad, Spring Peepers, Leopard & Pickerel frogs, Eastern Box Turtles, and more) that will be actively trying to cross the roads this time of year, their importance in the ecosystems, and examine some ways to protect and conserve these incredible species.
Admission to this virtual “lunch-and-learn” is $5. A portion of the proceeds will benefit wildlife conservation efforts.
Zoom link will be emailed to you upon registration. If you miss the program, or can’t make it during that time, still register anyway! An exclusive recording link will be emailed to all registrants the next day. If you know that you will miss the program, please email any potential questions or plants you’d like addressed during the presentation ahead of time to Marissa, at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure to answer them during the presentation.
