Promoting Professional Development and Best Practice in EE
Frog Calls Workshop for Educators
Date and Time:
Saturday, April 18, 2020, 1:00pm
A relatively simple and effective citizen-science project for students is the seasonal monitoring of calling frogs. Different species call from early spring through late summer. Changes in the types, numbers, or calling times may be indicative of global climate change or other environmental effects.
Participants will be presented a lecture on the biology of regional frogs including species identification by sight and sound. Students will learn to recognize different frog calls, and practice methods of conducting seasonal calling frog surveys.
Cost of the workshop is $15 and is open to educators ages 18 and up. Eligible for 2 hours of Criteria II or III NC EE credit, or 0.2 science CEUs.
** ADVANCE registration and payment are required. **
