Frog Calls Workshop for Educators
A relatively simple and effective citizen-science project for students is the seasonal monitoring of calling frogs. Different species call from early spring through late summer. Changes in the types, numbers, or calling times may be indicative of global climate change or other environmental effects.
Participants will be presented a lecture on the biology of regional frogs including species identification by sight and sound. Students will learn to recognize different frog calls, and practice methods of conducting seasonal calling frog surveys.
