If you don't mind getting your hands and feet dirty and care about the environment, then Salamander Savers is the group for you! Salamander Savers is an ecologically based 4H group that tries to find solutions to environmental problems. We accept any members from ages 8-18 who are interested in learning more about how to help the environment.
This group was started in response to a dredge of our local lake in 2015. Two years ago, three children had the idea to save the salamanders from the surrounding lake and advocated to local government officials to try to make it happen. They attended meetings, stood up in front of adults and tirelessly fought to save the vernal pools at our local lake. Out of their efforts, Salamander Savers was born.
