Leap into spring with your family and friends by celebrating FrogWatch 2008: Record the Ribbit on Saturday, May 3rd. This one-day event is easy, free and a perfect way for people of all ages to learn about the frogs and toads that live in our region. To participate, just visit, to learn about amphibians in our region by listening to their calls and viewing photos of local species. Then head outside on a nature walk – ideally, right around dusk when frogs are most likely to be calling. When you’re finished, come back to the Record the Ribbit website to share your sightings online.

Record the Ribbit is a special event of FrogWatch USA, the popular citizen-science amphibian monitoring program managed by the National Wildlife Federation in partnership with the United States Geological Survey. By participating in this long-term amphibian study, you have the opportunity to be directly involved in gathering information that can ultimately lead to practical and workable ways to help stop the decline of these important species.
