Friends of the Rouge is looking for people who live within the Rouge River Watershed who would like to survey their neighborhood for frogs and toads. The survey involves attending a two hour training workshop, learning the breeding calls, then surveying in the evening several times a month March through June. Surveys are done by listening and determining what species are calling. Survey areas are quarter square mile blocks that contain wetlands. Families, seniors, students, etc. are encouraged to participate, children are welcome when accompanied by a participating adult.
This is part of a long term study tracking calling amphibians as indicators of wetland quality.
