Bridgton Big Night

Please contact Maggie at or 207-647-4352 if you run into any trouble with the form.

Event Details
Every spring, salamanders, wood frogs, spring peepers and other amphibian species make their way out of hibernation to their nearest vernal pool where they will mate and lay eggs. This migration can be a vulnerable time for these important species. Paved, busy roads crisscrossing the landscape sometimes separate the amphibians from their destination in nearby forests or wetlands, putting them at risk of being hit by cars. 
You can help these important species by signing up to be a Big Night volunteer! With help from volunteers from the Maine Master Naturalist program, we've adopted two crossing locations in Bridgton.
  • We don't know exactly when we'll be going out, because conditions have to be just right (rainy and between 40 and 50 degrees) for the migration to occur. We will send out notification to interested participants when the conditions look good.
  • SAFETY FIRST! Participants are required to wear a reflective vest. We will have a number of vests available to borrow, but please bring your own if you have one.
  • Bring a headlamp or flashlight with you.
