Mudpuppy Night 2012

Another great evening adventure! Thirteen Macnamarans ventured out to Oxford Mills to join Fred Schueler and Aleta Karstad for the Friday evening mudpuppy count, which occurs weekly over the winter.  Also with us was a couple who had driven all the way from NY state to participate. The night was unusually mild and calm and the mudpuppies did not disappoint us. Fifty were counted and everyone saw many of them as they made their way upstream to feed in the shallow water.  There were a few wet feet among us as we shuffled over the rocks.  When the counting was done we had the chance to warm up and dry out at the lovely Brigadoon restaurant where we enjoyed the food and drink. There we had the opportunity to continue our discussion of mudpuppies and this special project.  For more information see
