Frogs, Freezing Roads & Human Safety
Keeping animals and humans safe through the seasons
May 11 7pm
Road salt is a lifesaver in winter –– for humans. But what about our amphibian friends? Come spring, these salts can run into wetlands and ponds causing harm to communities of wildlife that rely on these habitats to survive and thrive. We’ll explore the latest research on the impacts of commonly used de-icing salts on frogs, toads, and salamanders, as well as conservation efforts.
