Michigan Officials Looking For Frog Volunteers
No, they don't want to hear your best 'ribbit' and they don't want you to dress in a frog costume, officials need your help doing some actual research for their annual frog and toad survey.
Now entering its 20th year, officials in Michigan are seeking volunteers again this year to help with the state's annual frog and toad survey. According to the DNR, Michigan's survey consists of:
Ten wetland sites which will be visited three times annually -- in early spring, late spring, and summer -- by a volunteer observer. At each site, the observer will identify the species present on the basis of their breeding season calls or songs, and make a simple estimate of abundance for each species, using a call index value of 1, 2, or 3. Miscellaneous observations can also be made from locations other than the permanent survey routes.
