Call for Volunteers: Info & training sessions
Tuesdays, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Continues through Feb. 26 2013
Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge is in search of volunteers who would like to help collect information about the frogs and toads that depend on the refuge to survive. Volunteers will be trained to recognize frog and toad calls, and to collect and record data before heading out onto the refuge to conduct what we’re calling our FrogWatch Surveys. Surveys will be conducted at least three times per week, March through August; volunteers are asked to commit to doing a survey at least once per week during that timeframe. Refuge staff will talk with you about wetlands, the importance of frogs and toads to our ecosystems and our lives, train you on how to recognize their calls, and orient you to the survey locations. Attendance at all three trainings is highly recommended.
