Every year on dark and rainy night, when the ground starts to thaw, salamanders and other amphibians emerge from their wintering hole in mass quantities and make their way to vernal pools to mate. This night is known as “Big Night”. Big Night is a special night where we have the chance of observing different types of salamanders as they pick mates and lay their eggs. Conditions need to be optimal and nobody can accurately predict when Big Night will happen, sometimes until the morning of! If you are interested in joining us for Big Night in late March or early April, sign up below and we will keep you in the loop!
