SENEME Annual Fall Meeting & Special Event at Mystic Aquarium

Saturday, October 15, 2016
1:00 – 3:30 PM

As part of SENEME’s Annual Meeting, come and explore Mystic Aquarium’s new interactive Frogs exhibit that features over 30 different species of amphibians.

In this program, MaryEllen Mateleska, Director of Education & Conservation at Mystic Aquarium, will engage participants with information on amphibian species, their fascinating adaptations as well as the conservation efforts that are imperative for their survival. As a vital measure of the region’s environmental health, she will also discuss how you, your family or class can become engaged as citizen scientists to collect data that will aid in establishing a baseline population size of amphibians in New England. Populations of frogs, toads, and salamanders are drastically declining worldwide and collecting this data is an important first step in protecting these species for the future.

MaryEllen will then guide the group through the exhibit highlighting the unique species and their funky features.

Expand your knowledge of frogs by leaps and bounds!
