New CT Amphibians Video!

We've just released a new video documentary that provides a view of Connecticut's frogs and salamanders that has never been available before! Clips and information are available at

Taped entirely in Connecticut, Between Land & Water documents the lives of native amphibians over an annual season. Beginning with the thawing of vernal pools in spring, this documentary follows native frogs and salamanders to depict critical times in their life cycles such as spring migrations, calls and breeding seasons and developmental phases from larval forms to new “metamorphs” to adults.

Videotaped and narrated by Connecticut naturalist Brian Kleinman, Between Land & Water also describes aspects of vernal pool, stream and woodland habitats and amphibians’ roles in the functioning of local ecosystems.

Insightful and informative, this DVD provides a new resource for educators, libraries and museums—and for parents and families. It makes familiar calls such as those of Spring Peepers, Gray Tree Frogs or American Toads into invitations to explore native wildlife and habitats.
