Did you know that 14 types of frogs and toads call Montgomery County home?
Our local frogs and toads are helpful indicators of the health of our waters (along with just being cute!). They have porous eggs and can breathe through their skin, which makes them susceptible to environmental change. That’s why they are used by citizen science programs in studies.
The Montgomery County FrogWatch chapter is kicking off its 2018 season and is looking for new citizen scientists to help with our efforts of monitoring frog and toad populations.
If you’re interested, sign up for our FrogWatch introductory class. Learn why frogs and toads call, when it is the best time to hear them, and where you can hear them. It’s Amphibian 101!
And don’t forget, frogs and toads are beneficial to humans for many reason including eating insects like mosquitos!
