Story and Stroll at Tryon Creek State Park: Amphibians

The Story and Stroll program at Tryon Creek State Park on April 15th was all about amphibians. Inside the nature center we explored tadpoles, frogs, and an Ensatina salamander, while out on the trail Ranger Christal helped the kids search for frogs and salamanders.
