Resources to Start a Salamander Crossing Brigade
Have you ever been out driving on a rainy spring night, only to catch a horde of jumping frogs and wiggling salamanders in your headlights? You have likely stumbled onto a “Big Night,” a special time in the life cycle of these animals when they all seem to be on the move at once.
You can help your amphibian neighbors get where they’re going on Big Night by forming a Salamander Crossing Brigade! Below you’ll find links to resources developed by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, including a volunteer handbook with safety tips as well as a species count sheet.
