Jump into some fun community science. WCAMP is working to get a better understanding of where to non-native frogs are living in Whatcom County. The American Bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus) and Green Frog (Lithobates clamitans) have both been introduced to our County. At present we know that they ARE here, but we really don’t know where they are – and aren’t. Better understanding of where these two species are and are not is important for amphibian conservation in our fine County.
You Can Help. We are asking interested folks to do two things:
1. Join our Chasing Invasive Program and learn to listen for these frogs and report your findings (click here for more info).
2. Report any sightings of either species to Vikki@whatfrogs.org. To be useful a sighting should have a photo, date, location and contact info.
You can come and learn about these frogs in person on June 18th from 6pm till 8 pm at Tennant Lake (Free registration is required – click here)
