When Spring is just beginning to be though of in the Parkway, the frogs and salamanders come out to celebrate. As rainfall forms puddles called vernal pools, it is to these that many species of amphibians migrate to mate and lay the eggs that will hatch into the species’ next generation. Who knew a puddle could be so important?

There are a range of frogs, toads and salamanders that can be found in the Parkway, with a few Newts, Mudpuppies and Hellbenders thrown in for good measure (well, one of each to be exact).
