Frog Watch

Frog Watch is program where trained volunteers take observations (sight and sound) of frogs in their areas. Their efforts help track the distribution of frogs in Nebraska. As you may know, amphibians (which include frogs) are in decline throughout the world, including here in Nebraska.

Frog Watch Volunteers help us track the relative abundance and distribution of frogs. Plus they have a lot of fun learning about Nebraska's frog species.
