Did you know Nebraska is home to two types of salamanders! As cute and squishy (don't squish) as these amphibians are, more information is needed to learn about where they are found throughout the state. That's where the Nebraska Amphibian Monitoring Project comes in!
The purpose of this community science project is to train volunteers how to locate and record information related to salamanders in Nebraska. That info is then used by researchers to determine where in the state these animals occur as compared to where they have been historically known to occur. Neat!
There are new data collection methods this year, so even if you have attended a workshop in the past, attendance is required this year to participate. The workshop will be recorded and sent out to those registered.
This community science program is a partnership between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
