What

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!

Email your name and contact information to rlfisher@dawesarb.org in order to sign up to receive an email when conditions are right for migrating salamanders.  Further details and a link to register will be provided 1-2 days in advance of the anticipated migration.
