Enjoy these photos from Beekman Road from March 10, 2016. The frogs are mating Wood frogs and the other photo is their egg masses. These are fantastic proof that the road closings over the past 13 years are working to rebuild their population. For the first 9 or 10 years we didn't see any wood frogs at all. We suspect they had been extirpated by the road kills. Then a few years ago we saw a few and now we have a wonderful breeding population again! Wood frogs have a great ability to move far and wide and we are lucky that a few refound the Beekman pools over time and reestablishing a new population.
Beekman Road will be closed today, March 14, 2016 for safe amphibian crossing.
