AMPHIBIAN SEARCH

Learn more about these animals that breathe through their skin. We will start with an indoor program to teach you more about these creatures and how they are doing worldwide. We will then focus on the animals in our area and learn about identifying them by their calls. Then we will head outside on Five Rivers’ trails to look and listen for these amazing animals. Please call ahead to register for this free event. Space is limited.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.

Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
