Household Registration:

  • Each registration covers your entire household (up to two adults and children)
  • Please note: FrogWatch trainings will cover a large amount of information and protocols. While FrogWatching is a great after-dark family activity for all ages, the trainings are designed for interested older children and adults.

 

FrogWatch trainings cover the importance of amphibians in the environment. The instruction focuses on how to:

  • Monitor our local frog population to protect the species;
  • Determine factors when choosing a site to monitor;
  • Identify frogs/toads by their calls; and,
  • Report findings to FrogWatch USA.

After passing a test on identifying frog calls at the end of the training, certified volunteers then commit to monitoring a local amphibian habitat (such as a pond or lake) approximately once a week for about 15 minutes and collecting/submitting data on what they hear. Data collected will be added to a national FrogWatch USA database contributing to ongoing amphibian research and conservation initiatives.
