Who is that under the log? It’s been a while since we’ve seen them but our amphibian friends are back! This week we will learn all about the frogs, toads, and salamanders living here on the preserve and the crazy adaptations that make them who they are. Get ready to observe some amazing amphibians!
Ponds and Streams

At this time of year the water sources here at The Woods are gaining new life! To support all that life do you think the water in our streams and ponds needs to be clean? This week we’ll sample our ponds and streams to learn what the animals can teach us about water quality.
