Western toad tadpoles have been developing well in their pond and will be moving out of the pond and across the roads in Ryder Lake later this month. This annual migration from the breeding pond (Hornby Lake) across the road to their forest habitat results in many toadlet deaths. The FVC is in the process of designing and installing an amphibian crossing structure to divert migrating toadlets under the road but this structure will not be installed until after the 2014 migration. We will continue to post updates about when we expect the toadlets on the roads through the coming weeks. If you are planning to drive in the Ryder Lake area during the migration please take the posted detour route, if possible, to limit the number of migrating toadlets that get run over. If you have any questions please contact the FVC at 604-625-0066 or email@example.com.
