Beekman Road will be closed, starting at 8:30pm, today to ensure safe crossing of any amphibian that will be migrating to the pools.

The forecast is for "Scattered showers, mainly between 10pm and 5am. Cloudy, with a low around 55. Southwest wind 6 to 10 mph becoming north after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible."

Since the rain is forecasted to start after 10pm we do not expect any amphibian movement before the late hours of the night.

 

IMPORTANT REMINDERS ABOUT SAFETY

NEVER WALK BEEKMAN ROAD AT NIGHT IF THE ROAD IS NOT CLOSED - IT IS NOT SAFE!!!

Please be aware that Church Lane is very dark and cars move at fast speeds. 

Use extreme caution when parking or crossing the road and especially be watchful of your children. 

If you come to the road, EVERYONE (Children included) MUST have their OWN flashlight

 Do not touch salamanders or frogs! 

Our hands have natural oils and chemicals from soap and other things we've touched  that can harm amphibian sensitive skin. 

Amphibians are also very slippery and can be easily hurt if dropped. It's is best to just watch them cross and enjoy the way they move.

    Went out around midnight and didn't see anything crossing the road, as the asphalt was pretty dry. Though after I walked down the trail towards the vernal pool, I saw a peeper and chorus frog, and heard some wood frogs. The chorus itself was pretty deafening, quite a beautiful sound!
