FROG CALL MONITORING

at North Pond or any Natural Area in Chicago’s Parks

VOLUNTEER

Help save our native frogs and toads!

Join volunteers throughout Illinois to listen for frog and toad calls during breeding seasons.

The data you collect provides valuable information about the health of natural areas and ponds. Little is known about the status of your parks’ native frogs, so we need your help!

 Register for our one-time training class.

 Visit your chosen area to listen for calls three times between March 15 and July 10 (six hours total).

 Record your results on each visit and submit your data online. Your data will be shared with scientists and land managers to improve native frog and toad habitat!

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: February 22
