FrogWatch USA is a citizen science program that provides individuals, groups, and families opportunities to learn about wetlands in their communities by reporting on the calls of local frogs and toads.  Frogs and toads play an important role, serving as both prey and predator, in wetland ecosystems and are considered indicators of environmental health.

Volunteers are the foundation of the FrogWatch USA community – these trained individuals listen for frogs and toads during evenings from February through August and submit these observations to a national online database.

If you would like to be part of the Frogwatch community, join Westport River Watershed Alliance (WRWA) and the Buttonwood Park Zoo to become a citizen scientist! As a citizen scientist you will have the opportunity to explore your local wetlands, learn to identify local frogs and toads by their calls, and contribute data to a long-term scientific study.

To register for the training please email or call WRWA.
