Frogs are indicator species, and their populations are among the first to decline when environmental conditions take a turn for the worse. FrogWatch USA is a nationwide program facilitated by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums that relies on data from citizen scientists to assess the conservation status of native amphibians. A network of trained volunteers submit their findings to a database that helps ecologists determine which species are where and develop effective conservation strategies.
Recommended for ages nine and up.
Dates: March 3, 4 & 6
Time: 6 to 9 p.m.
