Salamander Crossing Evenings
Beginning in March on select evenings
Twinsburg’s most popular outdoor nature program, the “Salamander Crossing” is certainly a night(s) to remember. From the bike path in Center Valley Park, we’ll observe and HEAR the amphibians that call this park their home. Beginning sometime in March, we’ll be implementing our email distribution list to notify when a hike is expected to take place. We’ll be waiting for warm, spring rains, so have your rain gear and flashlights ready when these conditions are expected. The outings will conclude in early April. Strollers for the youngsters are welcome. To be included on the notification list, send you email to email@example.com. Your email address will not be shared. Those people on the 2017 list need not resend if email has not changed.
