Search for Salamanders

Looking for a rainy day activity and want to help local wildlife? This is a special time of year in New England for many different species, particularly salamanders. Warming ground temperatures and rain drops are causing these amphibians to ‘awaken’ and begin their annual migration to wooded ponds and vernal pools. This incredible journey is thrilling to witness, but can be perilous. Learn more about how to help with our Search for Salamanders Activity, the Holderness Center for Wildlife Conservation’s Salamander Forecast and Amphibian Road Crossing Sites!

Important Advisory: This activity is appropriate for children ages 7+ and MUST be done while accompanied by a trusted adult. For extra precaution, this activity is best done with a group. Outdoor education is important but safety is paramount.
