FrogWatch USA is a citizen science initiative to encourage nature lovers of all ages to get more involved with their local amphibians. Volunteers learn how to identify local frog and toad calls of Santa Barbara County and how to record data into an online database. From there, participants can monitor amphibian calls in the evening at any location – from their own backyards, to urban streams, to favorite camp sites. This is an opportunity to get involved in amphibian conservation, science, and monitoring – all while learning all about local amphibians.
To become a FrogWatch citizen scientist, individuals must attend two trainings at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Reservations are required for the trainings held Thursday, February 21 and Thursday, February 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Santa Barbara Zoo. For more information or to register for the trainings, email Ria Boner at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is available at www.sbzoo.org/conservation/frogwatch-usa.
