Salamander Migration Update

A Quick Update on why the road is being closed tonight.

Beekman Road will be closed again tonight. The road is being closed largely for administrative and scheduling reasons as opposed to biological ones. 

Although it is warm and stayed showery much longer than the weather forecasters predicted, the drying trend makes us think that it will not be a big night tonight. Searches of the woods today did not turn up a single salamander in the regular hiding places either. Who knows, maybe it will be the biggest night ever. But we are not counting on that happening.

There will also be a story about our salamander migration protection efforts on CBS 2 NY sometime between 5 and 5:30.

However, if you choose to visit the road tonight to see what if anything is happening (or for no other reason than to take a walk down a quiet street through the woods, BE CAREFUL and CROSS CHURCH LANE FROM THE PARKING AREAS WITH EXTREME CAUTION!
