Learn to identify and monitor Atlanta's amphibians at this all-ages worksop
- This event is a production of the Amphibian Foundation in conjunction with the Metro Atlanta Amphibian Monitoring Program (MAAMP). - It is free and open to the public. - RSVPs are not required and all ages are welcome to attend. - Seating will be on a first-come basis. Did you know there are almost 30 documented species of amphibians living in and around our Atlanta neighborhoods? In response to global amphibian declines, Atlanta's Amphibian Foundation has initiated a Metro Atlanta Amphibian Monitoring Program (MAAMP) aimed at identifying and monitoring amphibian breeding populations in our urban landscape. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce attendees of all ages to the amphibian species hiding under the rocks, logs and in the water around us. We will also describe their habitats and the best time of year to look for these species. A portion of the workshop will be focused on frog calls, as that is often the simplest way to confirm the presence of a species at a site. Anyone interested in local frogs and salamanders, and learning how to identify frogs by call is encouraged to attend.

What we're about

Public Group

If you are excited by science - but not necessarily a science professional - and you live in the Atlanta area, then the Atlanta Science Tavern is the meetup for you.

Our program is centered on a fourth Saturday of the month meeting at Manuel's Tavern, which features a speaker - typically a scientist from a nearby university or research center - who presents his or her work to a smart general audience of science enthusiasts. We also host occasional presentations as part of our ongoing Young Researchers Series, which features talks by graduate students and postdocs.

In addition, we organize social outings and field trips that provide opportunities for our members to experience science as it expresses itself in the community at large. Public lectures at local universities, most prominently the Georgia Tech College of Sciences, are a mainstay of our meetup calendar.

See you at the Tavern!
