Bring your family to witness Roxborough’s unique natural phenomenon—the spring migration of toads across Port Royal Avenue. See American toads up close, hear their trills, learn about their natural history, and even search for their eggs. Dr. Carlos Martínez Rivera, an Amphibian Conservation Specialist with the Philadelphia Zoo, will lend his expertise to talk about frog and toad conservation issues in our region. We’ll hike rain or shine, so bring a raincoat.
Did you know the Schuylkill Center works to protect toads through our Toad Detour program? Since 2008, hundreds of volunteers have helped over 10,000 toads cross the road. Want to help out? Learn more here.
