Participants will learn about native frogs, their calls and habits in an engaging presentation and then head into our frog-filled wetlands at dusk to hunt for breeding frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and their eggs. This event is always a sell-out, so hop to it!
This event is best-suited for ages six years and up. After the presentation we’ll divide up into small groups of ten people each for the night hike down to our Cattail Marsh and Pond.
- Families welcome!
- Adults without children welcome too! (it’s not just “for kids”)
- The presentation is 30-40 mins and seated. Younger children/siblings are welcome, but the presentation depth and hike length are developmentally suited for ages 6+.
- Evening hike to our wetlands is short distance, but on trails with roots, a small footbridge and it will be dark. If you or any member of your party (any age) is not sure-footed, please take note that the terrain is not perfectly even. One trail will accomodate all-terrain strollers and trail-rugged wheelchairs, the other will not.
- Infants on laps, or in baby carriers (Baby Bjorn, backpack, Ergo, etc) are free of charge.
- Wear layers to stay warm on a cool spring evening.
- Wear shoes appropriate for a light hike.
- Bring your raingear (boots, jacket, hat). The frogs love the rain, but we want to stay dry and comfortable.
- Bring a headlamp or flashlight, we only have a few to loan.
- As always, we love dogs, but please leave yours at home unless they are a service animal.
- We cannot accomodate scout troops or organized groups at this particular event due to our limited capacity. Thank you for understanding.
- Masks are encouraged outdoors on our trails anytime you cannot maintain a distance from another household. We are following all CDC, state and local guidelines for your safety.
