The warmer temperatures have been steadily melting the ice on the vernal pools. The Friends are constantly monitoring field conditions and the weather forecast in our attempt to predict the annual Spotted Salamander and frog migration to our vernal pools. The forecast for early this week features temperatures in the 40's and an even warmer day on Wednesday with steady (and possibly heavy) rain all day and into the night. If that pans out, we will definitely close the road. Similar conditions around this date in previous years have had big salamander and frog movements. So stay tuned and be sure to join the Friends (it's free) so you'll have the most timely information about the migration and all of our other cool programs and events.
NEVER (AND WE MEAN NEVER) WALK BEEKMAN ROAD AT NIGHT IF THE ROAD IS NOT CLOSED!!!
