Warm spring weather will soon be here, awakening sleeping creatures from their winter slumber. Streams and ponds once again will be teeming with an abundance of life. There will be a variety of fish, waterfowl, and other creatures. Some of our favorite creatures are amphibians – frogs and their land-based cousin, the toad. You can check them out at Cromwell Valley Park.
