The Juniata Valley Audubon Society will meet in the library’s Sheetz Community Room on Tuesday, February 19th. A free dinner starts at 6 pm: pork chops, rice, veggies, dinner rolls, banana pudding, caramel baked apples, hot shade-grown coffee and juice. At 7 PM Wildlife photographer David J. Hand will present incredible still pictures and videos of the magnificent Marbled Salamander and its life cycle – a result of many hours in the field observing this amazing creature. He will show the Marbled Salamander’s nest and eggs, embryo development, and larval growth through metamorphosis to juvenile salamander. Also included are photos of a rare leucistic Marbled Salamander from larva through metamorphosis.

Audubon meetings are free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to attend.
