16th Annual Salamander Festival

Presented by Friends of Shades Creek at Shades Valley Community Church, Homewood AL

Jan 25 2020
16th Annual Salamander Festival

Spotted salamanders come out only once a year, on a warm rainy night. The rest of the year, they live in the ground in burrows. They live in a rich forest habitat most of their lives, but need a wetland pool to mate and breed in.

The 2020 Salamander Festival is an indoor event starting at 3:00. An outdoor hike takes place at 2:00. See real salamanders, frogs, turtles and other critters, make arts and crafts, Rob Angus and his band Over The Hillbillies, dancing with Edgewood Dancing company,
