Leap into Conservation Program at the Maritime Aquarium

The Leap into Conservation program highlights amphibians as important species to the Long Island Sound watershed. During the 1-hour virtual program, participants will be introduced to local amphibian species, their ecological importance, and how to preserve our vernal ponds and wetlands. Participants will also learn how to create a wildlife-friendly backyard habitat by creating a home (abode) for amphibian species. Participants can then pick-up their free abode kits curbside from the Aquarium on select days. The abode kits come with instructions and materials for families to get creative in designing an abode. Maximum of 2 abode kits per family.
