Become a citizen scientist with FrogWatch USA, and help save our frogs! FrogWatch trainings cover the importance of amphibians in the environment, how monitoring our local population helps to protect them, factors to consider in choosing a site to monitor, how to tell frog species apart by their calls, and how to report findings to FrogWatch USA. After passing a test on identifying frog calls at the end of the training, certified volunteers then commit to monitoring a local amphibian habitat (such as a pond or lake) approximately once a week for about 15 minutes, and collecting/submitting data on what they hear. Data collected will be added to a national FrogWatch USA database. Cost is $10/household (up to two adults and two children). Preregistration is required. Details and registration at www.rwpzoo.org (follow links for Education).
