Read with a Ranger: Big Night for Salamanders

Participants will hear the story “Big Night for Salamanders” and embark on a virtual nail-biting journey as salamanders attempt to cross a busy road to lay their eggs in a spring pond. Will Ethan and his parents be able to help the amphibians make it across to safety?  After the story, find out about the yellow-spotted salamander and the Parkway’s own salamander crossing.

Read with a Ranger is a 45-minute program that is most appropriate for ages six and under, but everyone is welcome. Participants will listen to a story, join in a fun activity, and go on an optional and easy half-mile hike.  Read with a Ranger features a new story on the second Saturday of the month. To confirm the time and program scheduled each month, please visit our website calendar at www.nps.gov/natr/planyourvisit/calendar.htm.

This program is free to the public. The Parkway Visitor Center is located at milepost 266 on the Natchez Trace Parkway, near Tupelo, Mississippi. For additional information, please call (800) 305-7417.
