Spend time outdoors and become a community scientist with our Frog docent program! Help protect the foothill yellow-legged frogs, a federal and state species of special concern, by monitoring habitat conditions and educating hikers at Little Carson Falls.
Learn about the frogs in our lakes by joining our online event on March 5. To complete the training to be a volunteer docent then you must also join our meeting on March 12. Both will be held on zoom from 9:00 to 10:30 am.
Your monitoring efforts, plus the knowledge you share with other visitors on the watershed, support the health of the mountain and keep people connected to this special environment.
Volunteers that have not previously participated in the program are required to attend two trainings. As a returning volunteer, you can skip the first zoom meeting if you’d like. The second training is mandatory for anyone who wants to volunteer this year. We hope that all Docents will conduct at least three observational visits this spring.
The Frog Docent program is great for individuals, pairs, or whole families. If you are signing up as a group, please just fill out one form and include the names and ages (if under 18) of everyone in your party. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
