What’s a Hellbender?

A Hellbender is the largest salamander on our continent and we have them right in our own backyard! Native to the Appalachian mountains, the Eastern Hellbender can be found in our very own Doe River. Growing to over 2 feet in length, these reclusive giants will leave you shocked if you’re fortunate enough to see one. Needing very clean water to survive, they are a key indicator of river health. It is vital to observe, conserve and restore Hellbender habitats to help keep the mountains we love for generations to come.
