Would you like to help the environment? Do you know of a wetland near you with frogs calling? The Museum is looking for volunteers to help monitor frog populations in nearby wetlands during the spring and summer. The time commitment is 15 minutes one or two times per week, 1/2 hour after sunset. Older children are recommended as ½ half hour after sunset can be after 9pm in the summer. You do not have to be a frog expert as training is provided. Co-sponsored with Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo and The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.  Training is free for Yale Peabody Museum, Maritime AquariumBeardsley Zoo and CT Forest and Park Association members.  Fee is $10 for non-member families.
