Spring Mole Salamander Migration


  • February 21, 2018
    7:30pm - 9:00pm


While salamanders return faithfully to The Arboretum’s Cypress Swamp each spring, migration only occurs under certain conditions.  Migration typically takes place during an early spring rain, though in recent years migration has occurred as early as late winter.  Join us for a short presentation and the opportunity to experience this unique phenomenon!
