Toad Crossing


Despite a general population decline for the Western Toad, in 2007, Lake Aspen in Sun River Oregon experienced a uniquely high toad emergence. As 400,000 baby toads set out for life as adults, their path leads them straight into deadly peril on roads and bike paths. The Sun River Nature Center enlisted an army of children to come to their rescue.
