FROGWATCH USA AMPHIBIAN MONITORING
Anastasia State Park
Date: February 1, 2014 - August 31, 2014
Anastasia State Park is proud to announce that they are the 91st chapter of FrogWatch USA. FrogWatch USA is AZA’s citizen science program that allows individuals and families to learn about the wetlands in their communities and help conserve amphibians by reporting the calls of local frogs and toads. We need volunteers to help us monitor the frog and toad populations in the park starting Feb. 1st and continuing through Aug. 31st. The monitoring will occur twice a week, Mondays and Thursdays, after sunset and several volunteers are needed throughout the season. The project is flexible and volunteers may contribute for the whole season or just part of it.
Volunteers are not required to be experts on amphibians, but an interest in frogs and toads, a willingness to participate in a volunteer training session at Anastasia State Park, a commitment to learn and identify their distinct calls and to monitor a wetland site for three minutes multiple evenings throughout the breeding season are needed.
Please contact Brittany Sims by phone at (904) 461-2035 or by email at Brittany.Sims@dep.state.fl.us if you are interested in volunteering.
