"Big Night" Open House

$5
Calendar Next available session starts Mar 5, 2020 at 3 pm

Location: Gilsland Farm, Falmouth

Spring is Coming!!

Come to our Open House to learn more about one of our favorite springtime events - BIG NIGHT!

Big Nights happen in early spring when it's rainy and the temperature rises to around 40-degrees. That's when all the salamanders and other amphibians begin their journey from their winter habitat to their breeding grounds - vernal pools. Unfortunately, that journey often crosses roads so volunteers gather at known crossing spots to help these amphibians make their journey safely. 

At our event we'll have:

Presentations by Maine Audubon Conservation Biologist Sarah Haggerty at 3:30, 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 pm

Ongoing slideshow, games, books, and activities about vernal pools, amphibians, and turtles.

Join us to learn more about this important phenomenon.  We'll have learning opportunities for all ages!
