Submit Your Frog Listening Data

Volunteers are asked to commit 30 minutes once a month to listening for frogs and toads at a site that is convenient and easily accessible (see reference map on the right).

FLN will also have occasional fun outings where we will go out as a group and collect data. Check the event calendar for our next planned outing. The data will be based on an estimate of the number of male frogs that are calling during the 30-minute period.

Instructions
