Video: Why did the salamander cross the road?

SALISBURY — On early-spring evenings, with the first relatively warm rains, salamanders and frogs move from upland wooded areas to breeding pools to mate and lay eggs. Often these migrations take the amphibians across roads. At a site in Salisbury, Otter Creek Audubon and the Salisbury Conservation Commission help these amphibians safely reach their destination, collect data on
numbers and species, and raise public awareness of these migrations.
 
The first big movement night was last Thursday. Here, herpetologist Jim Andrews familiarizes volunteers with the spotted salamander, one of several species that crossed the road en masse that night.
