Chileno Valley Newt Brigade

Help save the newts

The Chileno Valley Newt Brigade seeks volunteers for newt migration season, from December through March. The group of volunteers is dedicated to assisting California newts safely cross Chileno Valley Road near Petaluma as they make their annual migration from the Chileno Valley hills to Laguna Lake, where they breed. Volunteers are expected to work two-hour shifts on a section of the road at night, picking up the newts and moving them across the road to safety. Using the iNaturalist app, teams collect data to better understand migration patterns and newt biodiversity. Volunteers must be vaccinated against COVID-19.
