Event description

Description

In just 10 minutes a week you can collect valuable information on local frog and toad populations that help to identify the scope and geographic scale of population declines. Throughout the program, participants will become certified FrogWatch USA volunteers trained in local amphibian vocalizations, ready to take charge of your own field and submit data into a national survey. As important predators and prey in the environment and indicators of environmental health, the information we collect can be used form conservation plans to protect these important species. Volunteers only need to attend one of the workshops
