About

Program Description:
MMWD needs assitance from the community to help restore a healthy Foothill yellow-legged frog (Rana boylii) population within the watershed. Each year, we train docents to monitor habitat conditions and to educate hikers about the foothill yellow-legged frog at Little Carson Falls, a popular hiking destination and a foothill yellow-legged frog breeding location. Docents monitor the falls between March and June - the time when the eggs and tadpoles are most vulnerable.

Volunteer Responsibilities:
Volunteers must come to the Docent Training on Saturday, March 10th from 10am-3pm. Prospective docents must RSVP for the training.

Volunteer docents are asked to commit to three four-hour shifts between March and June. No previous experience or special knowledge is required. Frog docents must be at least 18 years old and capable of strenuous hiking.

Becoming a frog docent is a great way to get outdoors, have an extraordinary volunteer experience, and contribute to public understanding and protection of this native species.
