A very common animal throughout eastern North America, the rotund and warty American Toad can be found just about anywhere in NJ, except in some of our coastal regions, where the almost identical Fowler’s Toad is king.
MENDHAM – The Schiff Nature Preserve will host “Down to Earth” from 6 to 10 p.m., Saturday, May 10, at the historic Pitney Farm, at 1 Cold Hill Road, to celebrate Schiff’s past and to raise funds for the future so it can continue in its mission of land conservation and stewardship in the Mendhams and Chester for many years to come.
The event will honor past Schiff presidents including Michael
Catania, John Hayden, James Porter, and Alan Willemsen; and recognize
the contributions of the late Franklin Parker, who helped conserve land
throughout New Jersey and the nation.
