Saturday STEAM: Amphibians

March 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Drop in to the AMOS from 2-4pm for Saturday STEAM: Amphibians! Join Professor Rebecca Hall of the UNCA biology department to look embryos, larvae, and adult salamanders from local wetlands and compare their life cycle to the more familiar life cycle of frogs and toads. Amphibians are important occupants of seasonal wetlands in North Carolina. Although most of us know the life cycle of frogs and toads and how they use wetlands, less familiar are the salamanders that are found in these same ponds. In early Spring wetlands in western North Carolina are teeming with eggs of spotted salamanders, larvae of marbled salamanders, and wood frog tadpoles.
