Volunteers with the Chileno Valley Newt Brigade spent their nights this week ferrying newts across a mile-long stretch of road. The team was organized by rancher Sally Gale, who reported finding hundreds of dead California newts crushed by cars last winter. The brigade will meet most nights this winter to walk the road, which follows a lake, with wet gloves, safety vests, buckets and traffic cones.
