FrogWatch Volunteer Training Workshop – Sunday, July 16 12-4pm

Join in the regional effort to protect frogs and toads through this citizen-science program

Join the land trust on Sunday, July 16 from 12pm-4pm for our next FrogWatch training workshop. The workshop will be held at the Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area Visitor Center (20201 AR-12 Rogers, AR 72756)

Through this volunteer certification training, you will learn the unique calls of 23 species of frogs that can be found in Arkansas. We will also discuss the importance of frogs and toads in our environment, and why they need our help. By completing the training, you will join the nationwide team of FrogWatch volunteers that contribute important population and activity data to the scientific community.

Citizen-science programs are an excellent way to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors in a new and interesting way. It is also a helpful resource for nonprofits like the Northwest Arkansas Land Trust to efficiently collect important data about the environment and enhance local conservation efforts for healthy wildlife habitat.  It’s also a great opportunity for current volunteers to explore new areas and support local conservation efforts.

Contact or call 479.966.4666 to register for the training.
