Save the Frogs Day - Saturday, April 26th
Peg and I spent an enjoyable afternoon at Pinnacle Mountain State Park south of Little Rock on Saturday. Jeremy Chamberlain and Chelsea Korfel brought several frogs and toads including bullfrogs, a chorus frog, green treefrogs, a dwarf American toad, a southern leopard frog, and an eastern narrow-mouthed toad.
Maryanne Stansbury, the park interpreter, was a great host for the event which drew many families. The kids were shown how to fold a business card into a frog and then race them.
Save the Frogs Day brings public attention to the importance of amphibians, why they are in trouble, and what can be done to help them. They can be indicators that the environment is in trouble.
