FrogWatch

Spearheaded by students in 2013, Hiram College’s FrogWatch chapter teaches local residents and students to identify frog calls and wetland sites.

Students can participate in this project by taking a one-credit-hour FrogWatch course during the Spring 12-Week semester, in which they spend time at the Field Station collecting data and learning the science behind frog populations. Community members may also attend FrogWatch sessions and learn how to record data in their own communities.

The goal of FrogWatch USA, a national initiative, is to paint a nationwide picture of frog populations and identify why and if they are declining.
