Free Frog Monitoring Workshops
You are invited to attend a free workshop in which you will learn how to help monitor the health of local wetlands by monitoring frog populations. By participating in the Calling Frog Survey, citizen scientists are a critical resource for land managers and herpetologists to collect large amounts of data that would otherwise be unattainable.
The abundance and distribution of frogs over time is an important indicator of the health of acquatic ecosystems, as frogs and other amphibians are very sensitive to changes in their environment. Land managers utilize these indicator species as an early warning sign of a declining habitat.
These workshops are for both beginning and experienced monitors. We'll teach and review the calls of our 13 frog and toad species, help monitors find survey sites, and discuss the monitoring protocol. Experienced monitors are encouraged to attend, in order to learn any protocol changes, obtain data sheets, review frog calls, and share lessons learned from last year. Volunteers only need to attend one workshop.
We're offering two dates for this workshop. Space is limited, so sign up early.
