FrogWatch USA™ Volunteer Workshops

These FREE classroom workshops will teach you to identify all the frogs and toads in your area by their calls in the first session.  Students will follow a Power Point presentation and learn to mimic the frog calls.

FrogWatch classroom

Learning the frog calls!

A full-color workbook with visual memory aids, range maps, and a call timing chart will be provided.  In addition, you will learn why they are important, why they are in trouble, and what can be done to help them.

The second session includes an introduction to wetlands and 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.  Session one is a prerequisite for session two, and a student may just attend the first session if they are not interested in becoming a citizen scientist.  For more about FrogWatch USA™ see  There is no charge for these workshops.
