Bay Area FrogWatch training to monitor local species at CuriOdyssey

frogwatchCuriOdyssey is home to the Bay Area FrogWatch chapter.  Since 2011, the Bay Area chapter has been monitoring our six local species: the Pacific treefrog, the red-legged frog, foothill yellow-legged frog, the western toad, the western spadefoot toad, and the bullfrog.

FrogWatch USA was established in 1998 and adopted by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in 2009 with the aim to monitor frog and toad populations across the US.

According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, citizen science is defined as “research collaborations between scientists and volunteers, particularly (but not exclusively) to expand opportunities for scientific data collection and to provide access to scientific information for community members.” In other words, citizen science is all about getting up close with the natural world and contributing to a larger body of scientific research.

Advance registration is required, and children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

If you are interested in becoming a FrogWatch volunteer and want to attend the training, or simply want more information, please contact Megan (mhankins(at)curiodyssey.org) You can also find us on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest FrogWatch news.
