Enjoying Our Natural Areas

Posted on Sep 2, 2014

This past week my husband and I enjoyed a walk through Long Point State Park, a RTPI Natural History Atlas location and a beautiful natural area just a short walk from our home. While we were out, we took a quick look in a stream and seep for some salamanders and found a good sized Northern Dusky (Desmognathus fuscus). Although the salamander was exciting to see, I was most excited to see my husband flipping rocks and enjoying this naturally rich area as much as I was.

Looking for Salamanders

While fall is soon approaching, there is still plenty of time to get outside and explore the county’s abundant natural areas, especially with great friends and family. If you have a passion for the natural world, share it with others and it may ignite an interest in them as well!
