FrogWatch USA™ Volunteer Workshops
These FREE classroom workshops will teach you to identify all the frogs and toads in your area by their calls. Students will follow a Power Point presentation and learn to mimic the frog calls. Attendees will also learn about wetlands and why they are important to the ecosystem.
Those who desire to become citizen scientists will complete frog monitoring training for the FrogWatch USA™ national network administered by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Citizen scientists around the country listen to frogs and toads from February through August and submit their findings to a national database. For more about FrogWatch USA™ see www.aza.org/frogwatch. There is usually no charge for these workshops.
