FrogWatch Training

Frog species around the world are disappearing at an alarming rate. To recover, amphibians must fight an uphill battle against pollution, climate change and habitat loss. How can we help? By becoming FrogWatch Citizen Scientists! Learn more about FrogWatch.

Register: March 24

FrogWatch training covers why amphibians are important to the environment with a focus on how to:

  • Monitor local frog species using scientific methods
  • Choose a wetland site that is suitable for FrogWatch 
  • Identify frog species by their calls
  • Report findings to FrogWatch USA
