Have you ever wondered about the fate of those thousands of wood frog tadpoles that emerge from our local vernal pools every summer and fall, following metamorphosis? Britt Cline, PhD candidate at the University of Maine, studies the links between land-use and amphibian post-breeding habitat. She will present her efforts and outcomes from research on how suburban development, agriculture, and forestry affect the post-breeding movement of wood frogs.
Tuesday, December 10, 7 p.m.
Location: Fields Pond Audubon Center, Holden
