Join us for a great opportunity to see the Western toad migration in action! These little neighbors — who qualify as a species at risk — face an incredibly dangerous trek each year, as they brave traffic to migrate en mass from their breeding ponds in two former gravel pits (located at 18 Avenue and 196 Street).

If you are interested in seeing the journey in live time, please meet us at the A Rocha Brooksdale Environmental Centre parking lot on Saturday, July 13 at 7:30pm, and we will walk or drive down together.

Another option to get involved is to sign up for one of our regular toad road surveys. These will be scheduled on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings (8-10PM), starting Monday, July 15. Toad road surveys involve walking approximately 2km of road and counting the live and dead toads observed. Please join the A Rocha BC Conservation Facebook group to sign up for surveys!

Please refrain from visiting the toad migration site at other times, in order to give our friends lots of traveling space!

Please note that the toads are moving a bit more slowly than expected this year. This outing is one of 2 planned attempts to see the toads in action, but it’s good to keep in mind that wildlife has a mind of its own when it comes to schedules!
