Welcome back nature lovers! There was a lot of stuff to see here at Ashland Nature Center once again. Check out these cool pictures of some cool animals that can all be found in your backyard!
Our first photo comes from teacher/naturalist Bethanie Delfunt and has not one but two animals! During a Forest and Field program for Bancroft Elementary School a red-backed salamander and a North American giant millipede were located by the students.
Wood frogs have left the ponds! A gorgeous male wood frog was also found in the forests. He was one of the many found this past week.
Our next photo comes from yours truly of a pretty big bullfrog that was found out the pond at Ashland. Bullfrogs have been out in masses this week. If you go out to marshes and ponds at night, there is a good chance that you will see bullfrogs and green frogs.
And finally some quality family time. Teacher/naturalist Jeff Haas found a squirrel nest in a tree cavity down at the marsh at Ashland. We believe that there are two babies with the mother. I saw the mother head in there today so they must all be doing well.
We don’t have a video this week but I’m sure that there will be something worth filming soon! Hope you enjoyed it! Austin Conley signing off. Stay Wild!
