For the third straight year, Fontenelle Forest will be hosting a chapter of FrogWatch USA.
The science program presents the opportunity for individuals and families to learn about the wetlands in their communities and help conserve amphibians by reporting the calls of local frogs and toads.
The Fontenelle Forest chapter will be holding a speaker series about amphibians and the dangers they face, as well as conducting training for those interested in participating in the program.
FrogWatch USA is a program created by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums designed to allow scientists to collaborate with trained volunteers to collect far more data than would be possible
This data has been used to help develop practical strategies for the conservation of these important species. For more information click on the link included with this story.:
