Four-toed salamanders spend their time under logs, rocks and leaf litter in mature forests near boggy areas and floodplains. This one emerged to perch on a mushroom at Jennings Environmental Education Center in Butler County, which WPC helped to establish to protect a post-glacial prairie. You might see four-toed salamanders migrating to vernal pools at some WPC preserves in March.Β 

This and other spring images will be available for downloading Mar. 19. (You can still get winter images through Mar. 18.) Watch for special redbud images in April!Β
