Baldwinsville Spotted salamander migration
Beaver Lake Nature Center invites the public to witness this year's Spotted Salamander migration during an early April evening. A naturalist-guided walk beginning at 6:30 p.m. will introduce participants to the natural history of these amphibians and the chance to meet a migrating salamander or two en route. Predictability is not always possible in nature, so interested participants in this evening of discovery should call the nature center at 638-2519 to be put on a calling list. The nature center will give participants at least a 24-hour notice. $2; registration required.
Preschool-age children, accompanied by an adult, are invited to gather at Beaver Lake Nature Center for the popular Trail Tales program at 1 p.m. Thursdays, April 11, 25, May 9 and 23. A naturalist reads two stories to the children and then leads the group on a hike themed to match the stories. This program is free with admission.
