Description

Mystic Aquarium is now an official chapter of FrogWatch USA, the Association of Zoos & Aquarium's first citizen scientist program. Join us at Mystic Aquarium for our spring training session on March 24 to become an official FrogWatch volunteer and collect valuable data on local amphibian species. After completing this three-hour training session, you will be a trained FrogWatch volunteer ready to take charge of your own field site and submit data for a national survey.

This event is free. Registration is required.

Also check out our Amphibian Monitoring Project on April 14.
