Featured Question

I live on the edge of Summer lake. We have a fresh water pond as well. The other day I found a salamander in my compost pile and I was delighted. I was curious if you have any ideas of native plants and habitate development to promote the return of frogs, and other amphibians. I think I hear that the toads have taken over the scene but I'd like to make sure I can restore the presence of more amphibians.
