The Norwalk River Watershed Association’s David Havens will lead a walk to explore some of the first signs of spring life, emerging amphibians, on Saturday, March 23, at 1 p.m.

Mr. Havens will begin with a short introduction on amphibians and how to spot them, then lead a woodland walk to visit vernal ponds coming to life with salamanders, newts, frogs and toads.

Discover some of the many species that occur in the area, search for eggs and tadpoles, and learn about amphibians’ development and seasonal habitats.

Meet at the first parking lot on the right, behind the ball field at St. Luke’s School, 377 North Wilton Road, New Canaan. Tall, waterproof boots are suggested.  The event is free and all ages are welcome.

Call the Norwalk River Watershed Association at 877-NRWA-INFO (877-679-2463) for reservations, information, to check for cancellation in case of rain, or for further directions to the meeting site and parking area.
