Discovery During a
 School Outing.

Students find the snakes and salamanders that the high paid government consultants could NOT!

Government was saying the Cawthra Bush was not in good environmental health as the indicator species, such as Amphibians & Reptiles, had not been found.  However, when the students from St. Paul Secondary School were doing a forest clean-up, Red-back salamanders and Garter snakes were both found in short order.  Equally lucky that members of the Friends of the Cawthra Bush & Greater Mississauga Area were participating in the clean-up, knew the importance of the find and would ensure it was reported & brought cameras to record the days events.  They are in black and white as it was planned to submit a story about the clean-up to the local paper.  Sorry not got the details about date, etc., up yet but will find them - soon.

It was early in the spring and one of the first warm days when Mr. Tsilfidis had his Biology class out to the local Old-Growth forest, the Cawthra Bush, to clean-up the litter that builds up over the winter.  First we encountered a small herd of Garter snakes that appear to be making their first excursion out of their hibernaculum, where they would have sent the winter together, intertwined in a ball, sleeping the cold months away.

This was quickly followed by an young lady discovering Red-back salamanders.

It will make a difference!
