      EVENT DETAILS
      Free FrogWatch Training

      This is your chance to become a FrogWatch USA volunteer! FrogWatch USA is a nationwide citizen-scientist program where volunteers help monitor frog and toad populations by recording and reporting information on their calling activity.

      At this training, you will learn how to:

      -Identify the various calls of our local frog and toad species
      -Identify a good wetland to monitor
      -Record and enter your data into the FrogWatch USATM online database

      Once trained, FrogWatch USA volunteers will monitor a wetland of their choice for frog calling as often as they are willing, ideally twice a week during the frog breeding season (March-August). The data that is collected is made available to both the public and scientists and is used to track changes in species distributions.

      Registration is required for this event.

      This is an all-ages event. Children should be accompanied by an adult.

      Cost: Free -
