Event Description: 

Fascinated by Amphibians? Looking to help the environment? Do you know of a wetland near you with frogs calling? Trained volunteers are needed to help monitor frog populations in nearby wetlands during the spring and summer. The time commitment is 15 minutes one or two times per week, 1/2 hour after sunset. Older children are recommended as ½ half hour after sunset can be after 9pm in the summer. You do not have to be a frog expert as training is provided. This training is provided by staff at the Yale Peabody Museum, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, and Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo. Together, these three organizations run the Peabody/Beardsley/Maritime chapter of FrogWatch USA here in Connecticut. This training is hosted at CFPA.
