This classroom workshop will teach you to identify all the frogs and toads in our area by their calls in the morning session. Students will follow a Power Point presentation and learn to mimic the frog calls. Handouts with visual memory aids 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 meeting 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. For more about FrogWatch USA™ see www.arkansasfrogsandtoads.org. There is no charge for this workshop.
After the program, we will explore the park for a short walk.
