FROGWATCH USA training
FrogWatch USA is a nationwide citizen-scientist program where volunteers help monitor frog and toad populations by recording and reporting information on their calling activity. Training will be provided on how to identify the various calls of our local frog and toad species, how to identify a good wetland to monitor, and how to record and enter your data into the FrogWatch USA online database.
Once trained, a FrogWatch USA volunteer will monitor a wetland of their choice for frog calling as often as they are willing, ideally twice a week during the frog breeding season (March-August). The data that is collected is made available to both the public and scientists and is used to track changes in species distributions.
No experience is necessary, anyone with an interest in helping protect our native wildlife can volunteer!
