Annual Frog Day approaches

Here’s an interesting volunteer opportunity. Word is, it fills up rapidly, so interested  folks should sign up right away. From the Flathead National Forest Learning Center announcement . . .

Join us for the annual Frog Day. Help find and count amphibians and reptiles in area wetlands.  It is fun and the Forest Service gains valuable data.

The day starts with a 1-1/2 hour training session on how to identify local amphibians and reptiles and how to do the surveys. Participants work in teams of 2-5 people with a forest biologist or technician leading the group. Anyone 7 years and up is welcome to attend. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

In 2012 the event takes place June 28 on the Hungry Horse/Glacier View Ranger District.  For more information or to sign up to participate, contact Teresa Wenum, 406/758-5218 or
