Join Clean Water Services, Metro, Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, The Wetlands Conservancy and the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge this winter to count frog and salamander egg masses in parks and natural areas around the region.
Volunteers will track Pacific chorus frogs, Northwest salamanders, long-toed salamanders and Northern red-legged frogs. Monitoring these native species helps indicate overall wetland health and how regional enhancement efforts are helping wildlife thrive.
Volunteers typically conduct four separate surveys, totaling approximately 12 - 25 hours in late January - March 2018. New volunteers must attend a training to participate in the 2018 season. You will learn about the regional efforts to survey amphibians, how to identify egg masses of local amphibian species, and how to conduct surveys. Come connect with fellow members of your community, contribute to science and explore natural areas!!
