Field Notes from an Audubon Naturalist Society Stream Salamander Survey Field Trip Saturday 4/25/15 led by our teacher Rachel Gauza. It was a cool spring morning between 45 and 60 degrees; partly sunny. We went to a Class 1 Stream, which is a healthy ecosystem and probably the only environment where one would find sensitive “indicator species” such as the Northern Red Salamander and the Dusky Salamander.

The final picture, of a Spotted Salamander egg mass, is from a Vernal Pool. All the other species are found in the moving water of streams.
