Fans of amphibians should mark their calendar for March 31, when Monroe Lake hosts “Salamander Sunday.”
There are two programs open to everyone, no registration needed: an 8 a.m. salamander survey at Stillwater Marsh, and a 3 p.m. woodland salamander exploration at Paynetown SRA.
Two other programs require advance registration by March 27: a 10:30 a.m. presentation on the salamanders of southern Indiana, which is limited to 25 people, and a 1 p.m. salamander craft session, which is limited to 16 children. Both take place at Paynetown SRA.
Complete details on all four programs, including meeting locations and registration links for the two programs that require advance signup, are at http://bit.ly/salamandersunday2019.
Salamander Sunday programs are all free and there is no fee to enter the property during the winter season.
Questions should be directed to Jill Vance, Monroe Lake interpretive naturalist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
