Celebrate Save the Frogs Day – April 27th
But as you know, they are really having a tough time making it right now and they need our attention.
Save the Frogs Day is coming up on April 27th and this is a great day to focus in on our amphibian friends.
Here are a few ideas on things you can do to get to know our local amphibians a bit better and help them out:
– Visit one of our local parks and look for frogs. Claude Moore Park has not only the big ponds but also a wonderful garden pond behind the visitor center where Green Frogs and tadpoles can be seen. Or, head over to the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship – there’s a great pond right at the start of the trail that has Green Frogs, Bullfrogs, Pickerel frogs and more. Other Great Places across Loudoun are also terrific for frog watching – let us know what you find!
– Sign up for our Frog Call Survey or adopt a site to survey. You can pick a location or route close to home so it’s easy to do.
– Have a Happy Hour for the Frogs and toast to the frogs with whatever grog you have onhand
– Grab your shovels, mark off a spot of lawn (you weren’t having fun mowing it anyway) and make a little frog pond. They’re easy to build and can be a really fun family project. After digging and filling, resist the urge to stock it with fish or frog tadpoles from the nursery…just watch and wait. The frogs and toads already in your yard will find it!
