FrogWatch USA

Become a Peabody/Beardsley/Maritime FrogWatch Citizen Scientist!

What is FrogWatch? FrogWatch USA is AZA’s citizen science program. It provides individuals, groups, and families opportunities to learn about wetlands in their communities by reporting on the calls of local frogs and toads. Volunteers listen for frogs and toads during evenings from February through August (just 5-10 minutes a week) and submit these observations to a national online database. Monitoring through FrogWatch USA can be an enriching experience that allows one to connect with nature and also contribute to amphibian conservation efforts.  Click here to read more about FrogWatch.
