FrogWatch is a citizen science program that collects information about the presence/absence of frog species in different areas and habitats, and helps to estimate abundance. It is a fun, simple program that is well suited to a wide range of community volunteers.

About the event
The objectives of frog auditory (listening) and visual (looking) surveys are to document the presence of different frog species and estimate abundance during their active season. This data can be used in a variety of ways, including to support long-term monitoring of frog populations and distribution. Frogs and toads can also be used as indicator species because they are vulnerable to changes in the atmosphere, the land, or the water.
We are hoping to recruit volunteers in the Annapolis River watershed to help collect data about frogs. This session will focus on an introduction to the FrogWatch protocol and the calls of the 7 species of frogs in Nova Scotia. Data collected through FrogWatch will also be shared with other conservation projects beign led by partners across Nova Scotia.
