Spring is right around the corner, which means Michigan's wildlife is going to start showing up all over the place, like frogs! John Ball Zoo's FrogWatch program is a great example of how the community can help preserve its natural habitat of West Michigan.

FrogWatch USA is a citizen science program of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).

Anyone can join FrogWatch and help contribute valuable information to scientists studying amphibians! This citizen science program provides individuals, groups and families the opportunity to learn about wetlands in their communities and report data on the calls of local frogs and toads.

Volunteers are asked to commit to collecting data approximately once a week for about 10 minutes during the season.
