CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL
One of the reasons I wanted to buy the farm was to offer a place of refuge for native critters of Ontario. Loss of habitat is having a remarkable impact on every species and I wanted to help in any way I could. Amphibians in particular are suffering these days. However, I've been lucky enough to see a ton of Leopard Frogs at the farm as well as these little guys: Blue Spotted Salamanders. If you can believe it I've even signed up with Frog Watch for next spring, documenting the calls of Ontario's mating frogs and toads! STOKED!
