Salamander Migration Update - #14

Posted by Friends EB EC on March 11, 2013 at 6:15 AM

We expect that Beekman Road will be closed tomorrow night. Forecasts have coalesced around an area of heavy rain and above normal temperatures beginning in the early morning hours Tuesday (around 4am right now) and continuing all day until dark. This is exactly the kind of weather we look for to trigger the migration. We can't guarantee anything, but the warm temperatures over the weekend and again today coupled with significant rain tomorrow sure look good. Since weather forecasts are simply predictions based on models, we will post another update tomorrow. 


If we close the road and you come out a few very important reminders: 


Use extreme caution crossing Church Lane.    

Dress for wet, raw weather.

Each person should have a flashlight with a good strong light.

Walk carefully and be on the lookout for tiny spring peepers and of course salamanders.

Let others know what you find so they can share in the fun.

What time do you expect this to occur. Tuesday night or early Wednesday. Or more general, does this occur late at night or early morning?
