Naturalist and amphibian expert Gretchen Young will lead this indoor-and-outdoor experience. Participants will learn about the interesting lives of local amphibians and also have a chance to go outside and look at these fascinating critters. Participants will look for frog and toad eggs, adult frogs and toads and native salamanders. Also, we will listen for mating calls.

Participants should dress for the weather. There is a $3 fee per person, although the program is free for park members. Registration is required. For more information and to register, please contact Nixon County Park at (717) 428-1961.
