Herpetology Season Begins!

Starting soon, SHADOW’s amphibian monitoring team will be conducting monitoring of SHADOW’s two amphibian ponds. This team will be looking for egg masses and other evidence of amphibian breeding that will then be reported back to Woodland Park Zoo. In the past, SHADOW has been home to Northwestern Salamanders, Long-toed Salamanders, Pacific Chorus Frogs and Red-legged Frogs.  

Our monitoring team is made up of four community members and lead by a local teen, who is completing her senior project for Tahoma High School. To learn more about Woodland Park Zoo’s amphibian monitoring program, visit their website.
