Volunteer: Toadlet Fencing 2021

To sign up, email alex@fraservalleyno.wpengine.com

Reminder that sign up is mandatory so we can better plan for the day!

The Job

  • The tadpoles are getting closer to metamorphosing into tiny toadlets, and soon will be making their annual mass migration to the surrounding forest. Come out and help us install silt fencing in a hay field. We will be hammering stakes into the ground and laying down garden hose to make sure the little toadlets can’t sneak their way underneath. 

Why it’s Helpful

  • Thousands of toad tadpoles are growing into toadlets and soon it’ll be time for them to migrate to the forest on the other side of the road. You will be helping them to do this safely! Installing the toadlet fence will ensure that they get to their tunnel under the road!
