North Carolina has an incredible diversity of amphibian species. These fascinating animals usually spend some portion of their life in water and on land, undergo metamorphosis, and serve an important role in ecosystem health. Join us as we explore some of our amazing frogs, toads, and salamanders, including our state salamander, the marbled salamander. Participate in amphibian activities you can use in your classroom. Then take a night walk to look for some them and explore their wetland habitats. This workshop will happen rain or shine (amphibians love the rain!).
