    01/09/2021

    We are adapting our First Saturday model in January and February 2021 to bring you our extended Move, Play, Eat! campaign. Join us throughout January and February for shared activities, games, and recipes and tune in to live experiences on Saturday, January 9th and Saturday, February 6th.

    For many households, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant an increased amount of time at home and an endless list of cancelled events and activities. To start out 2021 on the right foot, we are encouraging you to set aside time each week to Move, Play, and Eat with your household using our activity, game, and recipe suggestions!

    Pick Up a Take Home Activity Bag: Contactless pick-up of Take Home Activity Bags will be available beginning Friday at 1PM at Ridgefield City Hall (230 Pioneer St). Bags will remain available on the front step while supplies last.

    Explore our town: Check out two brand new scavenger hunts we have prepared for you! The Downtown Scavenger Hunt (click here to print or screen grab the hunt) will have you walking around downtown in search of artwork, signs, and more. The Anywhere Scavenger Hunt (click here to print or screen grab the hunt) can be used in any neighborhood or town for a fun walk!
    Do one today and save the other for next weekend, or spread them out throughout the week!

    Explore the campaign: You can find all of our Move, Play, Eat suggestions on the webpage any time. Be sure to check back in as new items are added each week!

  • Amphibian Monitoring Training for 2021 Season
    10:00 am-12:00 pm
    01/30/2021

    Do you love frogs and salamanders? Would you like the chance to get outdoors and see them in the wild? Do you want to help your community support local amphibian populations? Frogs and other amphibians can be found all around Clark County, but their numbers are decreasing, according to Dr. Peter Ritson.

    We are looking for volunteers to help the Southwest Washington Amphibian Monitoring Project or SWAMP, an all-volunteer program dedicated to empowering community members to assess and preserve the unique ecological resources for our community.
    After this 2-hour training session, where volunteers learn how to identify and count local amphibian eggs, volunteers get the opportunity to survey and monitor the frogs and salamanders in ponds and streams throughout Clark County and beyond.
    “We want to educate Clark County residents about the importance of amphibians and their associated habitats,” said Dr. Ritson. “We hope to encourage their protection in several ways: engaging citizens in wildlife protection, providing data essential to species conservation decisions, and increasing public understanding of the importance of wetlands in a rapidly urbanizing region.”
    We will be looking for eggs from red-legged and chorus frogs as well as northwestern and long-toed salamanders. Volunteers help us track changes in their population over time by searching for egg masses in the spring, recording the data, and uploading it into our database. Gear is provided.
    Our guest speaker this year is Dr. Matt Distler, a Staff Ecologist at Oxbow Farm and Conservation Center. He will be talking about the life cycle of amphibians and his investigation into whether roads, especially high traffic highways, are keeping amphibians from making their seasonal migration to ponds, where they breed.

    Our training will be held virtually this year. Participation is free and open to everyone. Pre-registration is required on Eventbrite to receive the zoom link. Please sign up if you are interested in participating this season even if you are unable to make it during the training time. We will send out a recording of the training afterwards.
