The tiger salamander—which can grow up to a foot long— has been disappearing from the Delmarva wetlands in recent decades. Biologists have launched innovative programs to restore the hydrology and vegetation in numerous Delmarva bays to help salamanders survive and thrive. Kevin Stohlgren, southern region biologist for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources’ Natural Heritage Program, will delve into the successes of the programs and the challenges ahead for this salamander. This talk can qualify for continuing education hours for Master Naturalists.
