Summertime is when amphibians and reptiles are warm, happy, and moving all around the pond, creek, and forest. In this camp, we’ll search the pond for tadpoles, newts, and frogs and learn about the places they love to hide. We’ll also be on the lookout for salamanders as we search Balch Creek for amphibians and insects that they love to eat. With luck, we may even find the rare Coastal Giant Salamander. It’s huge!
