This part of the Salisbury Swamp in Vermont is the breeding ground for the largest population of four-toed salamanders (Hemidactylium scutatum) in the state. Four-toed salamanders are rare in Vermont and are a species of special concern. Undisturbed wetland forest adjacent to upland woods is critical to the life cycle of this species. The tiny salamanders migrate several hundred yards between upland wintering areas and wetland breeding grounds every year.
