Our Hidden Diversity

A recent survey of Hemlock Lake turned up Spotted Salamanders, Red-bellied Snakes, Wehrle's Salamanders, Ring-necked snakes and Eastern Red-backed Salamanders. All found within an area of a few hundred feet of one another. There are a wide variety of reptiles and amphibians right underneath your feet if you take the time to look for them.
