Learn about slithery things at "On the Lookout for Amphibians," a program on amphibians followed by a guided amphibian hike at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 17, in Bent Creek Forest outside Asheville.
The program is being hosted by RiverLink.
A presentation outlining common species of amphibians found in our area, and defining characteristics of each, will be followed by an audio presentation on frog and toad calls.
The group will then go on the hunt for these beautiful creatures in Bent Creek Experimental Forest. Be prepared to get dirty while searching through the leaf litter on the hillsides and in the streams. Care will be given to leave the forest floor unaltered, and to safely release each salamander where it was found.
Meet at the RiverLink office located at 170 Lyman Street in the River Arts District in Asheville.
