    Mudpuppy Night in Oxford Mills

    Leaders: Dr. Fred Schueler and Aleta Karstad

    Meet: 5:30PM at the Brigadoon Restaurant in Oxford Mills (if you wish to have dinner there beforehand) OR meet there at 7:30PM for a brief talk before heading out to see the Mudpuppies nearby. The restaurant has directions on its website.

    After we are introduced to these amazing large salamanders we will go to the water below the dam, where the Mudpuppies venture out after dark to feed on the flat bedrock. This is the best Mudpuppy viewing site in Ontario and there should be plenty of opportunity to examine them up close. Expect to be outside for at least an hour, either near, or preferably in, the shallow water. Dress very warmly and wear your tallest waterproof boots. Bring a strong flashlight if you have one. Register at events@mfnc.ca and please indicate whether or not you will be coming for dinner.
