Each spring, volunteers show up at LaBonte Park on potential migration nights to patrol 9th and Canby streets. Salamanders are picked up off the roads as they cross and brought safely to the edge of LaBonte Pond. Volunteers spend however long they’d like helping to protect and conserve this population of salamanders. Are you interested in volunteering to help Laramie’s salamanders safely complete their annual migration? Children 8 years and above are welcome to become a volunteer if accompanied by an adult.

Salamander Migration Forecast
The salamander migration typically occurs in wet weather when the ground is thawed and temperatures are above freezing. In Laramie, this means on any rainy night above freezing in early spring, salamanders might be on the move! Check back here often for the most up-to-date forecast before heading out to the park to volunteer or observe the migration.
