Science Talk & Wetland Demonstration
Sun. 03/10/24; 6:30 pm - Sun. 03/10/24; 8:00 pm
Archbold Biological Station (in-person event)
Come learn about the many species of frogs and toads that revel in rainy weather and nightly fill the sky with their wonderfully varied calls and croaks. Archbold herpetologists will give a 30-minute presentation on the amphibians living in Florida scrub habitats, starting at 1:30 pm. Afterwards they will lead an optional nature hike to seasonal ponds used by amphibians for breeding and demonstrate tadpole sampling techniques. Adventurers should come prepared to walk at least 0.5 mi on sand roads to get to the ponds. Hats, water bottles, and sunscreen are highly recommended, as are closed-toe shoes. For anyone who really wants to wade in a bit deeper, we recommend old sneakers and quick-dry pants. Sign-in begins at 1:00 pm with the event beginning at 1:30. Suggested $5 per person donation (cash or credit). No RSVP necessary.
