Citizens Science Series: Herptofauna, Amphibians
This wonderfully diverse group of organisms will no doubt amaze you with their ability to adapt in sometimes downright strange ways. From the stomach brooding frogs of Australia to the zombie-like abilities of the American wood frog! Lean what challenges amphibians face today and what you can do to assist these animals. During this program we'll do our part by counting with our Herp Atlas Survey and also by providing habitat by building toad houses. You can choose to leave your toad house for For-Mar's community garden or take it home to encourage toads to move into your garden. Smartphone possession not required for participation in this program.
