Wednesday, 9:30-12:30 pm. 2 live newts! 60 dead newt.
Weather: cold, then rainy.
Coverage: Aldercroft Heights intersection to stop sign. I walked with Kat.

I've never seen so many little ones during one survey. 28 of the dead newts were found on the reservoir side. The live ones were walking towards the hill. We helped them cross, as well as the banana slug.

@merav, thank you for helping the live animals across the road. It is so tragic that so many animals are killed on this road.
