Salamanders with Don Scallen

Monday, November 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Speaker and the Presentation

Don Scallen dove into the natural world as a little boy and has remained immersed ever since. He’s a birder, a herper, butterfly blitzer, fish watcher and a native plant aficionado. He writes for In The Hills, an acclaimed regional magazine:  https://www.inthehills.ca/author/don-scallen/

He has also contributed articles to ON Nature magazine and Blazing Star, the newsletter of the North American Native Plant Society. Don recently published a book called Nature Where We Live to encourage people to step outside and engage with nature in their own backyards and their local ecosystems.⁣


For decades, Don Scallen has visited springtime ponds to witness the wondrous spectacle of Spotted Salamander and Jefferson Salamander breeding. He will share pictures and video of this special time of year. Don’s salamander adventures are not limited to the spring however. In recent years he has ventured into the woods in early autumn to document the nocturnal behaviour of various salamander species. And in late fall of last year, he finally had the opportunity to meet and photograph a mudpuppy in a local stream.
