Nebraska Game and Parks Commission along with University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) is hosting a workshop to train volunteers to find and record sightings of salamanders in Nebraska. The workshop will be on Saturday, April 20, 2019 from 5:00 PM- 9:00 PM at Indian Cave State Park (Shubert, NE). A potluck dinner will begin at 5:00 PM, with sub sandwiches, drinks, and tableware provided. Participants are encouraged bring a side dish or dessert to share. A presentation from Dennis Ferraro, UNL Herpetologist, will start at 5:30 PM. This presentation will detail how to find, identify, and record salamander sightings and contribute that information to the ongoing citizen science project Salamander Search- part of the Nebraska Amphibian Monitoring Project. At sunset, workshop participants will join Ferraro and Nebraska Game and Parks staff to survey for salamanders throughout the park (weather dependent).
This program is free and open to the public, but all vehicles entering the park must have a valid park permit.
