Frog and Toad Survey
Thursday, May 16, 6:30 p.m.
We’ll meet at Oak Ridge Forest Preserve parking lot and hop down to the wetlands. We’ll discuss the different types of frogs and toads species found in northern Illinois. We will listen to their calls and explain the need to conduct surveys.
We’ll listen and document what frogs/toads are found. After surveying at Oak Ridge we will drive to Deer Run Forest Preserve in the eastern part of the County and survey there. We’ll end by talking about how you can help by surveying other properties and reporting back your information. For ages 8 and up, please call with reservations 1-815-335-2915.
