Frog Frolic at Towner Hill Preserve

April 3, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy and Great Hollow for a guided hike to witness the spring migration and breeding of wood frogs. Every spring, wood frogs emerge from hibernation underground and migrate as far as a half mile to their unique and ephemeral breeding habitats known as vernal pools. We’ll hike up to the vernal pools at the top of the Towner Hill Preserve in Sherman to see wood frogs in action and listen to their chorus of mating calls. The hike is moderately difficult and includes a fairly short, but steep, uphill walk. Kid friendly and recommended! Be sure to wear proper footwear and take precautions against ticks. We’ll meet at the Towner Hill Preserve trailhead off of Route 37 in Sherman, about 0.25 miles north of the White Silo Winery (32 Rt. 37 East, Sherman, CT 06784). Parking is very limited and advanced registration is required to allow for social distancing. Participants must wear masks. No dogs, please.

Sign up by emailing John at jfoley@greathollow.org.
