Frisky Frogs! National Recreation Area Closes Road So Amphibians Can Mate
You’ve may have heard of road closures due to bad weather or rock slides but ever heard of one due to some frisky amphibians???Well if you’re around the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area you may have.
??The park announced in a Facebook post their yearly closures of River Road within the park ??to ensure amphibians can mate safely without getting run over.??The road closure will happen over several nights from 4PM to 6:30AM until mid-April.
The closures occur during just the right kinda weather for some froggy fun; which is rainy evenings with temperatures in the 50’s, ??and a bottle of wine….kidding about that last part.
The post went on to say the closure allows vulnerable amphibians to crawl or hop from a short distance and some even from over a quarter of a mile to moist breeding pools.
??And if you still try to drive through River Road when it’s closed…..Well I TOAD you so!
