Update on Toad Migration
As of September 14, 2016, migration is slowing down. A few toadlets are still migrating from the lake to upland habitat. Despite the extremely early breeding this year, most toadlets emerged from the lake in early September, much later than expected. Most toadlets were observed at the south-east end of Summit Lake.
Update on Toadfest 2016
Thank you to all who came to Toadfest 2016! Even though there were no toadlets ready to move at Summit Lake Provincial Park, there was a great public turnout and lots to see and do, including a mass congregation of tadpoles – many still with tails – on the shoreline. Thanks to all the exhibitors and everyone who came out.
