Date & Time
Visit the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium for this free presentation highlighting FrogWatch USA, a citizen science program coordinated by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums that is documenting and protecting threatened amphibian species, and learn how you can help these efforts.
Frogs and toads play an important role in our wetland ecosystems, serving as both prey and predator, and are considered indicators of environmental health. Many previously abundant frog and toad populations have experienced dramatic population declines both in the United States and around the world and it's essential that scientists understand the scope, geographic scale, and cause of these declines.
Volunteers are the foundation of the FrogWatch USA community, which is why we need your help. These trained individuals listen for frogs and toads during evenings and submit these to a national online database. Monitoring through FrogWatch USA can be an enriching experience that allows one to connect with nature and also contribute to amphibian conservation efforts.
Advance Registration is required for this event.
