Unfortunately, the weather forecast for tomorrow looks cold and grim, so we have decided to cancel the Frog Frolic hike. Please check back for more “frog fun” on May 4th to learn about Frogs of Connecticut!
Join Great Hollow Nature Preserve and the Naromi Land Trust for a guided hike to witness the spring migration and breeding of wood frogs. Every spring, wood frogs emerge from their hibernation underground and migrate as much as half a mile to their unique and ephemeral breeding habitats, known as vernal pools. We’ll hike up to the vernal pools at the top of the Towner Hill Preserve in Sherman to see wood frogs in action and listen to their chorus of mating calls. The hike is moderately difficult and includes a fairly short, but steep uphill walk. The hike will be led by Naromi Land Trust board member and Great Hollow’s naturalist, John Foley.
April 15 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
