3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Virginia Zoo
Are you interested in local conservation and the animals in your backyard? Then FrogWatch USA™ might be the right program for you. Come join the Virginia Zoo as we explore the outdoors to discover local amphibian species and learn about conservation issues they face and how you can help. You do not have to be a frog or toad expert to be a citizen scientist in the FrogWatch USA™ program. All you need is an interest in nature and a commitment to monitor a site through the breeding season.
Volunteers must participate and register for a three hour training session. There is no fee to attend and you need only attend ONE of the classes. Classes will be scheduled and announced here:
· Saturday, May 19 , 2018 from 3 pm – 6 pm.
· More classes TBD
All children must accompanied by an adult.
To register for the training, fill out the form below or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help the Virginia Zoo gather important information about amphibians in Hampton Roads and contribute to real conservation efforts!
