Join Sippican Lands Trust and FrogWatch USA volunteer, Lorene Sweeney, as we look for amphibian signs of spring at SLTs White Eagle property on Sunday, March 31starting at 1:00 pm. The group will meet at the end of Parlowtown Road and explore the wet and lively woods and ponds at SLT’s White Eagle property while looking for signs of early spring. While weather and temperature dependent, we hope to see and hear spring peepers and maybe Wood frogs in their frenetic spring breeding season.
Lorene Sweeney will share her experiences with the citizen science program titled “FrogWatch USA” – more information about this program can be found at www.bpzoo.org/whats-new/event/frogwatch-2/.
The walk should be a short walk of a mile or so over flat terrain. There will be considerable portions of the walk that have wet areas and muddy stretches, so boots are recommended.
White Eagle is located off of Route 6 in Marion. Take Parlowtown Road across from the town cemetery and follow road until you reach the cul-de-sac.
The walk is free, and no registration is required. If the walk is canceled due to inclement weather, then information will be posted to SLT’s website and Facebook page. For directions or further information visit sippicanlandstrust.org or call Sippican Lands Trust at 508-748-3080.
