FrogWatch USA Training

Date: Mar 2 2013
Time: 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Join our grassroots conservation program! FrogWatch USA is a citizen science program that allows individuals and families to learn about the wetlands in their communities and help conserve amphibians by reporting the calls of local frogs and toads. Amphibian populations are indicators of ecosystem health, and they are in decline nationwide. By collecting meaningful data, we can help scientists better understand our hopping green friends.

All are welcome to attend our FrogWatch USA training. Families, adults, teens, groups – anyone can help gather important information about amphibians in the Fort Wayne area and contribute to real conservation efforts!

At a training class, you’ll learn how to identify frogs by their calls. You’ll then visit local wetlands on your own to collect data about the frogs and toads present.

2013 Training Date:  March 2, 2013

The training class will be held at the zoo’s Discovery Classroom on Saturday, March 2, 2013, from 11 AM – 3 PM.  Bring a sack lunch or snack.  There is no fee to attend. To register for the training or get more information, contact the Zoo Volunteer Office at 260-427-6828 or volunteer@kidszoo.org. You’ll be a part of real effort to preserve the natural wonders in your own back yard.
