Catch Them If You Can: Salamander Dance at Black Pond Woods with Natural Area Preservation
March 1, 2016 - March 15, 2016
During the first warm spring rain, just after dusk, salamanders make their way from their winter hibernacula in the woods to nearby water in a mass migration to mate. Black Pond Woods boardwalk on the right night is an excellent location to see the mating dances! We will join up with City of Ann Arbor’s herpetologist, Patrick Terry, for a guided hike to the pond.
Additional “Catch Them If You Can” events this spring and summer may include:
Spring Ephemerals at Creekshead Preserve (late April/early May)
This preserve has carpets of spring wildflowers interspersed with little pools of chirping frogs.
Perseid Meteor Shower at Sharon Hills Preserve (July 17-August 24, peak on Aug 12-13)
Away from city lights view this annual light show as earth’s path crosses that of Comet Swift-Tuttle and we see bits of the comet hitting our atmosphere and burning up.
