Frogs and Frogwatch USA

I'm going to be attending an evening program next week on frogs. I plan to be part of this Frogwatch program since we have a small garden pond and a large pond across the street that I could "watch" at. I'm excited since I so enjoy seeing the American Toads mate and deposit eggs in our pond last year. Click double arrows to the right to see the entire process along with the eggs.

Get ready for spring breeding at your nearby pond or wetland area. This frog and toad monitoring program gives you the opportunity to help scientists conserve amphibians. With as little as 20 minutes a week you can collect essential information to protect frogs and toads.

This long-term amphibian study, managed by the National Wildlife Federation in partnership with the United States Geological Survey, will increase awareness of amphibian decline and will give you the opportunity to be directly involved in gathering information that can ultimately lead to practical and workable ways to help stop the decline of these important species. Get all the details.
