4/19/17: Every spring, amphibians emerge from their winter woodland homes and make their way down to the marshes and ponds to breed. March through April you can see these frogs and salamanders crossing Vermont roadways en masse, risking their lives to spawn.

Eva met up with a group of herp enthusiasts in Huntington to explore the marshes alongside Hinesburg Hollow Rd which were hopping with Spring Peepers, Spotted Salamanders, Eastern Newts, Wood Frogs and even a freshwater leech.

You can help track the distribution of these animals by contacting The Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas Project.

Music: Kevin MacLeod, "Not As It Seems" & "Mysterioso March" Claude Debussy, "La Mer," Performed by the US Air Force Band
