In late August, there is, what is called, a Toadfest at Summit Lake Park, southeast of Nakusp. The public gathers to help western toadlets cross the highway during their migration from lakeshore to uplands.

The problem of vehicles squishing thousands of toadlets as they cross a highway does not seem to exist at Kokanee Creek Park. There are toadlets, but a greater separation between water and highway.

Tadpoles roam ponds near the Lake. In another ten days, migrating toadlets will delight observers.
