Throughout most of the year, the brilliantly colored Sierra newt (Taricha sierrae) lives on land, hunting and eating insects, earthworms, and slugs and hiding from any potential predators in the moist soil beneath rocks and logs. In the winter and spring, however, these members of the family Salamandridae become aquatic, returning to the pond or stream where they were born in search of a good time.
We at SYRCL are committed to our restoration projects – both river and meadow. Do you know who else loves a good restoration project? Beavers!
During this holiday season, SYRCL is asking for donations to help us educate the next generation of river stewards – the future voices of the watershed who are learning to protect this place we love.
