Salamander Saturday; a Slithering, Slimy Success!

Posted on May 11, 2016

Although the words slithering and slimy aren’t typically associated with good things, the opposite is true when you’re talking about celebrating all things salamander!













Many thanks to all who joined us at RTPI to enjoy an array of displays and activities all centered on these fascinating and important creatures!









Visitors enjoyed viewing a variety of live salamanders on exhibit by Chris Duckett of Amtilia Outreach, taking a walk in the woods with RTPI Conservation Technician Elyse Henshaw to search for live salamanders and their eggs in their natural habitats, and creating salamander crafts with RTPI Communications Coordinator Melanie Smith.











Given the positive feedback we received following this event, RTPI is planning to offer additional programs like it in the not-too-distant future. We’ll keep you posted!
