Menunkatuck Audubon presents Salamanders of Connecticut. Since 2014 has been declared the Year of the Salamander by the Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, we’ve invited Hank Gruner from the CT Science Center to present his Salamanders of Connecticut program on April 9. This special program will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a half hour hands-on salamander identification workshop for kids, followed by our usual meeting/program agenda at 7 p.m.
Bright orange ‘eft,’ miniature ‘four-toed,’ sticky as glue ‘slimy’ …. they might look like lizards, but they are very different indeed…. Salamanders! Stop by to learn more about the twelve different species inhabiting Connecticut’s forests and wetlands, each presenting a unique window into the world of biology and conservation.
Hank Gruner is a herpetologist with more than 25 years of experience working with state agencies, municipal commissions, consulting firms, and environmental organizations on the conservation of amphibians and reptiles in New England. He is a graduate of the University of Connecticut and currently serves as the Vice-president of Programs at the Connecticut Science Center.
