Amazing Amphibians of the Wonderful Wetlands

Spring is a time of inspired renewal and frog choruses are part of this annual celebration! Washington state is home to an incredible 26 species of amphibians -- of which 11 are salamanders, one newt and 10 species of frogs, as well as one species of toad on the wet, west sides of the Cascades and Olympic Mountains.  

We will discuss their field ID, adaptations, bio-ecology, habitat associations, and conservation status in two lecture/discussions and then we will go out on an easy field trip to some local wetlands to listen and look for them ourselves! Join us to learn more about and to better appreciate these slithery sallies and happy hoppers!
