Help Scientists Conserve Frogs and Toads Locally

Here’s a cool opportunity Maymont is offering that gives citizen scientists — i.e. you and me — a chance to help monitor frog and toad populations.

From Maymont: Help us count the frogs! FrogWatch USA is a long-term frog and toad monitoring program that collects data on local species, helping scientists in their battle to stop amphibian decline. Join our local chapter at Maymont to help with the effort.

Sign up for one of our free training sessions, which will include background on FrogWatch, an introduction to the site, and information on how to monitor and identify the calls of local frogs. Participants may bring their own lunch or dinner.

FrogWatch Training Dates at Maymont:

Thursdays, February 15 & 226-8pm (must attend both sessions)
Saturday, February 24, 10am-2:30pm

While FrogWatch is a great family activity for all ages, training sessions are designed for interested high schoolers and adults. Registration is required. For more information, email our Environmental Educators or call 804-358-7168.


About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
