Did you know up to 14 species of frogs and toads may be found in the District of Columbia and that each can be recognized by unique calls made during the spring and summer? You can learn more about your amphibian neighbors and contribute to conservation in your community by becoming a DOEE FrogWatch Chapter Volunteer!
In order to participate, new volunteers will need to attend one of two in-person training opportunities hosted by a DOEE Fish & Wildlife Biologist at the Aquatic Resources Education Center (AREC) in Anacostia Park (view map):
· Saturday, March 2nd from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
· Saturday, March 16th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
On Wednesday, 03/20, from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM we are celebrating the return of spring with our first Kingman Island monthly meet up. This meet up will also serve as a field orientation opportunity for new Kingman Crew volunteers, as well as other new volunteers who wish to get some experience in the field prior to conducting monitoring independently (as space allows).
For questions about DOEE FrogWatch or other environmental education programs at the AREC, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 202-440-3951 during business hours.
