My 7 year old has been crazy about seeing a salamander in the wild here in Iowa for the last 3 years. Dallas county conservation just posted that the rain shower has triggered the migration from adjacent property into the marsh near Voas nature center (Minburn). Naturalist will be on hand between 4-7 for discussion. Noted location is 180th for larger number of them. Maybe we’ll see you there.

Saw 2 probably three weeks ago in the morning after it rained the night before. Last time we had substantial rain fall. Rained a little hear yesterday but not enough to get them moving.drawetsmParticipantOctober 22, 2015 at 1:36 amPost count: 586

I saw 4 at different times this afternoon crossing the blacktop south of Garwin this afternoon. Just like the previous post–just after a rain shower.Slab SeekerParticipantOctober 22, 2015 at 2:54 pmPost count: 115
We used to see them all the time after rain about this time of year. We are on the NE side of Grimes. Haven’t seen one for several years now. Wife about soiled herself when she looked in the sprinkler box one time and one was in there. 😀nahdoggParticipantOctober 22, 2015 at 3:27 pmPost count: 212
We ended up catching and depositing in the marsh about 2 dozen of the little guys. My kids were very happy. The naturalist said that if we get a little better rain tomorrow that there could be hundreds. Check the Facebook page for updates. I’d post pics but I can never get them to work on this site.kenhumpParticipantOctober 23, 2015 at 12:01 amPost count: 12770
Cool little critters and big bass and cat think so too. 😀
