What’s new at the Station

On February 24, the Holston Rivers Virginia Master Naturalist training class stopped by the Bartlett-Crowe Field Station for an introduction to water chemistry and a lecture on local amphibians and reptiles, followed by a salamander walk.   We found dozens of salamanders of 6 different species.  The Southern Appalachian region is well known for salamander diversity, with at least 30-40 species found in the area that intersects southwest Virginia, northeast Tennessee, and northwest North Carolina.
