Annual Frog Count

Each spring volunteers tramp through the woods searching out vernal pool in order to record the numbers of frogs for the annual frog count. Data are collected using a calling survey technique, in which volunteers identify local amphibian species by their unique breeding vocalizations or calls.

You can go to The North American Amphibian Monitoring Program to sign up. According to the Burlington Free Press volunteers are especially needed to Count Frogs in Northern Vermont.
