The Amphibian Migrations and Road Crossings Project is part of a larger NYSDEC Hudson River Estuary Program and Cornell University effort to partner with local communities to conserve the diversity of plants, animals, and habitats that sustain the health and resiliency of the entire estuary watershed.

Important Note

NYS law prohibits the collection and possession of amphibians without a NYSDEC permit. The NYSDEC does not interpret the momentary assistance or incidental movement to help an amphibian avoid injury or death as collection or possession, provided it is immediately released and placed back into its environment
