It’s that time of year everybody. The Newts have started to cross the roads as they leave their summer ponds and head back to the forests. They are especially thick on Bartholemew Rd ‘tween Hague Lk. Rd and the Hanks Beach trail head and near marshy areas across the island. Remember while taking care of the newts also take care to drive safely and be aware of other vehicles.
The fall migration will last all of October.
Newt pickup precautions

Don’t forget that beets are very porous and sensitive creatures — the oil on our hands can hurt them.
Before you pick them up, wash your hands and keep them damp.
Or use a couple of sticks?

On Providencia they close the road during crab migration! Imagine...

Someone has actually vandalised the Newt Crossing sign. I have always had a chuckle seeing that sign and apparently it was no easy feat to get permission from Dept. of highways. C'mon people it is part of where we live.
