Toads on the Road: Roxborough’s Sign of Spring
March 11, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On the first warm rainy night of spring, an explosion of toads hops across Port Royal Avenue– often during the evening rush hour. The newly awakened creatures, just finished with their hibernation, are determined to get to the water high up in the old reservoirs. Doug Wechsler, a wildlife biologist, photographer, and author of many books including The Hidden Life of a Toad, shares his extraordinary photos and knowledge of the toad’s complete life cycle. Learn why this uniquely Roxborough phenomenon happens here at this time of year. And we’ll share our ongoing Toad Detour program whereby volunteers like you can help these toads cross safely.
